Russian police find smuggled caviar 'in morgue freezer'

SAINT PETERSBURG (AFP) - Police have discovered a huge stash of contraband caviar stored in a hospital morgue freezer alongside dead bodies in Russia's second city of Saint Petersburg, officials said on Thursday. Kept in large canisters marked 'Aviation Security. Inspected,' the stash of both red and black caviar weighed 175kg - a haul that can cost hundreds of thousands of euros on the open market. 'The caviar was being stored in the morgue freezer, which relatives used to say their final goodbye to the departed,' a police spokesman in Saint Petersburg said by telephone. The Komsomolskaya Pravda daily said the morgue appeared to have been partially leased to a local businessman who used it as a transport and packaging centre for the caviar.
