Accused Drug Smuggler Just Wanted Clean Hair

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Australian authorities are looking for drug smugglers and last year they thought they'd found one. Neil Parry was arrested at Darwin airport and accused of stuffing drugs into bottles of shampoo. Mr. Parry spent three days in jail, but has now received $100,000 in compensation. Testing of the bottles of Pantene shampoo and conditioner showed they actually contained Pantene shampoo and conditioner, nothing more. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
