France - A Vatican mobile lending library belonging to the Pope's Argentinian colleague Retired Cardinal Jorge Mejia, 93, has been busted in Lyon for peddling cocaine.
Police say four kilos of 95% pure Colombian coke was confiscated along with half a ton of weed following a tipoff that narcotics were on offer along with copies of the Good News Bible.
The mobile library was seized near Chambery as it made its customary Tuesday drop -uh, itinerary! - ministering to believers in remote and isolated French Alps locations.
Two men dressed in fake ecclesiastical garb were detained along with their booty in what Gendarmes say was a highly profitable business run on 'reading club lines'.
Top sellers included cut-price Papal Dispensations for anyone getting caught with a spliff and bottled Holy Water personally passed by the Infant Jesus.
A number of latex fashion items and matching rubber lingerie were also seized as part of the haul.
