Police confiscate 345,000 used condoms destined for resale

Police in Vietnam broke up a criminal ring that collected used condoms, rinsed them, and resold them, reports Reuters.

The owner of the warehouse said they had received a "monthly input of used condoms from an unknown person," state newspaper Tuoi Tre reported. A woman detained during the bust told police that the used prophylactics were first boiled in water then dried and reshaped on a wooden phallus before being repackaged and resold.
