Customs officers in France took a second look at some Christmas decorations that appeared to be arriving a little late. They found a shipment of Santa Claus decorations, and discovered that the items were made of cocaine. They may have been manufactured in Venezuela, using about five kilograms. In the past, authorities have discovered shirt buttons, toys and even a plaster cast made of cocaine.
