Cocaine Sharks

from Daily Dose

Drug gangs go through great measures to conceal narcotics destined to the United States. June 16th, proved this point as the Mexican Navy discovered slabs of cocaine stuffed in 30 frozen shark carcasses. With the help of X-ray machines and sniffing dogs the Mexican Navy was able to seize 1,986 pounds, 868 kilograms, of cocaine. As Mexico's military is cracking down on the drug cartels, the drug gangs come up with innovative ways to transfer drugs into the United States. Objects like sealed beer cans, toys, surfboards, furniture, and religious statues have been used by drug trafficers as a concealer and container for drugs. But the frozen shark carcasses are a whole new level of innovation, wonder what will be next?
