Not the usual type of nuggets one would expect to find down there…
A Sri Lankan man, on his way to India, got held up at the airport. Now, we’ve all gotten stuck at the airport, and it sucks. The lines are long, nobody is ever really helpful, and there’s the stress of being behind schedule. Now imagine you have almost $22,000 in gold up your a$$. That’s uncomfortable!
The International Business Times reports: The 45-year-old suspect was carrying gold weighing up to 1kg and was held after one of the customs officials found him walking suspiciously. He was bound for India but was stopped at Colombo’s international airport.
“Walking suspiciously.” That’s a polite way to say it.
The official then checked the man using metal detectors and identified the hidden luggage, “carefully packed in polythene bags and neatly inserted”.
Well of course it was neatly inserted! That’s not something you just jam in there!
“Among that there were four yellow gold biscuits, three pieces of yellow gold, six yellow gold jewellery articles and two silver plated yellow gold jewellery articles,” a customs spokesman told The BBC.
I’m not sure what would be more upsetting, getting stuck with the job with butt smuggling, or failing at your butt smuggling job. If I’m going to go through an ordeal like that at least I want to get paid at the end, not jail time!
… Then again, if I do get caught with a bunch of stuff up my butt I guess I’m awfully prepared for prison life.
