There’s no end to the industriousness of drug smugglers.
They’ve tried to smuggle in pot in fake carrots.
They’ve tried a drone to drop heroin into a prison yard.
This week, border agents in Tucson, Arizona said they busted a woman trying to sneak in a pound of meth disguised as burritos.
The operative word here is “disguised.”
Because, clearly, the smuggler didn’t put much thought into it – no fixings to blanket it in, not even an aluminum foil wrapper to give it an authentic burrito look.
Drug-sniffing dogs quickly led agents to the 23-year-old Nogales woman as she crossed through the Morley Pedestrian Gate on Friday.
The woman later told authorities she was a mule who had been offered $500 to take the drugs to someone in Tucson.
Agents said the methamphetamine was worth more than $3,000, which would have made for some seriously expensive burritos.
