SMUGGLERS CAUGHT HIDING LOTS OF GOLD UNDER THEIR TOUPÉES, BALD CRIMINALS
Ah, smugglers. So smuggling has been going on a long, long time. I’m not sure if it’s actually the world’s oldest profession or not. If you don’t know what that means, think about who people go to “see” in red light districts. But regardless, smuggling is still in demand. Why? Well, sometimes people want to move things that are illegal to possess, transport and definitely not to sell. Other times, it’s to avoid duties and taxes. Or, maybe, people just want to move money around, without anyone knowing. Sometimes, money is money. But other times, like now, money is really gold. And smugglers were recently caught trying to sneak gold, under their toupées!
NOW THAT’S SOME BAD HAIR, CUSTOMS OFFICIALS THOUGHT TOUPÉES WERE OVER THE TOP
Normally, I’d say they were baldly brazen smugglers. But as I’m bald, I have to be more sensitive. Authorities caught two men at India’s Delhi Airport a few weeks ago after their flights landed from Dubai. Their names were Magroob Akbarali and Zubair Hassan Rafiyutheen. They must not have looked to trustworthy, because Cutoms officials decided to stop them for a more thorough inspection. In total, the two men had a lot on their minds, to the tune of 595 grams of gold. That’s equal to over $30,000 USD hidden under toupees. So far, we don’t know what the gold was for, or if the two smugglers were just mules.
PARTIALLY SHAVEN SMUGGLERS WITH TOUPÉES HAD NOTHING ON FELLOW PASSENGER UP THE REAR
But the two smugglers did make a game try, even shaving off some of their own hair to try to fool officials. Yet they had to let their hair down, and their clients, I presume, as well. But usually, it seems that people smuggling gold use older, more tried and true methods. Like, sewing the gold into their underwear. Another proven practice to sneak things is, as you might already “ass”ume, up the rectum. Oddly enough, another person on the same flight, smuggler Balu Ganesan, had 622 grams of gold all up in there.
