What started as a joke ended with the future of two altar boys from Spain. They were detained overnight, after having surprised them putting weed in the censer-burner of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, in Spain.

The censer-burner is used in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, to celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord, known worldwide. Several assistants stated that in this occasion the holy precinct was suddenly covered in an odd smell. “It did not smell as always, it was a familiar smell but I could not relate it to anything. But in my son’s bedroom sometimes smell like that”.

Following the Mass, these altar boys were arrested by the police, after confirming that the strange smell corresponded to marijuana. “It was a joke, the idea came during the Christmas Eve mass. We bought no more than half a kilo of weed and we dropped it inside the censer-burner. We are sure that people have left the Cathedral happier more than ever”. Finally, they were freed without charge but they will not be able to discharge their functions as altar boys any more.
