Border Patrol noticed something suspicious about the tractor-trailer with the fruit and they ordered it to go through a second inspection. This is when they discovered that those were some dank ass limes.
The truck crossed the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge along the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico. Everything seems to be going as planned, until the fake fruit packages were discovered by an imaging inspection system and narcotics K-9 team.
In a statement, Port Director Efrain Solis Jr. explained how they intercepted the attempt to smuggle the drugs. "This is an outstanding interception of narcotics. Our CBP officers continue to excel in their knowledge of smuggling techniques, which allows them to intercept these kinds of attempts to introduce narcotics into our country.”
The case is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security. Uh huh, they are “investigating” the case. I’m sure they are doing a whole lot of “investigating”. Does anybody smell that? It smells like a skunk!
This is not the first time that smugglers used fake produce to try to bring drugs into the United States. Last year, agents found 2,493 pounds of marijuana stuffed into fake carrots at the same border crossing.
This week Customs Border Patrol Field Operations seized nearly 900 pounds of marijuana in a commercial trailer at the same Pharr International Bridge. Can someone tell these fools it’s not working!? Stop smoking all that pot you are smuggling.
While fake limes may seem like a crazy idea. There have been many crazier ways people have tred to smuggle drugs. Heroin in lollipops, pills in snake bowels, drugs hidden in fat flaps and a man even attempted to smuggle drugs in the foreskin of his penis. Is it all worth it?
