17 Ways Smugglers Have Used Food To Disguise And Transport Illegal Drugs
People have been coming up with creative and dangerous ways to smuggle drugs throughout history.
When it comes to the drug trade, criminals have proven that they’ll try just about anything to successfully transport illegal substances to buyers undetected — even if that means using human beings as packaging.
That said, it should come as no surprise that food is also used by traffickers to move their products, but as you’ll soon learn, they don’t always get away with it. Here are 17 ways that food has disguised drug shipments.
1. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized over two tons of marijuana hidden inside of coconuts in Pharr, Texas.
2. A police dog sniffed out meth inside packages of tortillas at the Nogales Port of Entry in Arizona.
3. About 2,632 pounds of marijuana were found with a cucumber shipment at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge.
