The customs department has begun investigations to trace the whereabouts

of a Sri Lankan actress who had allegedly peddled drugs concealed within a magazine mailed from the UK.

Customs officials had discovered drugs within a package that had been received at the central mail exchange yesterday. A foreign national who had arrived at the central mail exchange to claim the parcel had subsequently fled authorities following the discovery.

Although officials had managed to contain the suspect another foreign national who had accompanied him had managed to escape. The magazine had been mailed from the UK, bearing the address of a Sri Lanka actress.

The foreign national who had attempted to claim the package in which the magazine was contained had arrived with a letter of endorsement from the actress, authorizing him to make claims.

 According to officials the foreign national who has been placed under arrest is being interrogated while further investigation in this regard have already commenced.

According to the department of customs three packages containing a magazine as well as a box of incense sticks are said to have been contained in the main container. Officials note that the drugs had been craftily concealed within the folded magazine.
