Customs in Tokyo decided to go against regulation and use a passengers bag, instead of using a regulation bag for the training exercise. The unfortunate event of an agent with a forgetful brain and a dog who did not use his nose, left one either lucky or unlucky passenger with 142g of marijuana.
“The dogs have always been able to find it before… I became overconfident that it would work,” he said.
“This case was extremely regrettable. I would like to deeply apologise,” said Narita International Airport’s customs head Manpei Tanaka.
Anyone finding the package has been asked to contact customs officials.
