A Sri Lankan man was arrested at the airport for trying to board a plane with a butt-load of gold — literally.
The 45 year old was trying to board a flight to India when customs officials noticed he was walking a little funny. A metal detector at security beeped like crazy and confirmed that he was hiding something. A deeper search dug out more than 900 grams of gold shoved inside his rectum. Security guards found yellow gold biscuits and other gold jewelry valued at approximately $29,000, all carefully packaged and inserted into his rear end.
He’s facing smuggling charges.
