65yr-old German caught with cocaine worth #277,000 sewn into underpants!
London, August 19 (ANI): Customs officers in Barcelona recently caught a German pensioner with cocaine worth 277,000 pounds stored inside the neoprene shorts he was wearing underneath his jeans.
According to reports, 160 canisters of the drug, weighing 6.6kg, had been sewn into his underpants.
The drug was discovered after customs workers were alerted to his suspiciously large behind.
"He wasn't a big man but he had a very bulky rear end. Then when he sat down it was like he was sitting on eggshells. His backside and his legs looked like they belonged to a weightlifter," the Telegraph quoted one official as saying.
The 65-year-old German, who flew into Barcelona from South America, was arrested and jailed.
The customs officer added: "We've seen all sorts of stunts but the big pants were a first for us."
The incident came just days after a man was arrested after he stuffed 25kg of cocaine into 407 courgettes, and attempted to get to New York.
He was intercepted at the airport of Las Americas, Santa Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. (ANI)
