Picture 3

Customs officers [in Spain] arrested a smuggler with six and a half kilos of cocaine hidden in his shorts after becoming suspicious of his big bum.

Officials at El Prat de Llobregat airport, Barcelona, forced him to strip and found specially made pants with dozens of tiny pockets sewn in to hold the drugs. The green neoprene pants contained more than 160 pockets for canisters of cocaine.

A pigeon’s behind bars after being caught smuggling drugs into a high security jail in Bosnia. The bird is a pet of one of the inmates and it’s thought tiny bags containing heroin had been tied to its legs.

Wardens at Zenica prison grew suspicious when they noticed four prisoners becoming “visibly intoxicated” shortly after the pigeon was spotted landing on a window-ledge.
