More than 1kg of cocaine, as well as 500g of marijuana, was stuffed into the plastic, costume shop-style phalluses, and was seized by police.

The homeowners managed the Little Corner Of Peruvian Flavor Peruvian restaurant, according to the Guardian.

The alleged gang leader was under house arrest when police stormed the building.

The smugglers had been using codes in telephone calls with customers, police said, including a ‘grandmother’ for 10g of cocaine, and a ‘baby’ for 5g of the drug.

One drug user said in a call: ‘Send three grandmothers to my house.’

The dealer answered: ‘Three grandmothers and two babies?’

Five men and three women were arrested after cops launched seven raids in La Plata, San Isidro and Berisso.

During the operation, which started in January, investigators trawled through 400 hours of taped phone calls.
