Snake smuggler convicted
Forty odd scorpions, five adders and three Chinese snakes - all packed into one suitcase. The cargo has landed the 28-year-old smuggler 60 hours of community service after he was caught at Stockholm's Arlanda airport with the illegal goods.
Two months previously, two packages courriered to the man from Hong Kong were apprehended. They contained five snakes, of which two were endangered King Cobras, reports newspaper Metro.
