Guy Got Caught In New York Airport With £134,000 Of Cocaine Down His Pants

A man tried to smuggle 10 pounds of cocaine through customs at New York's JFK Airport by taping it to his legs, only to be caught by authorities.

US Customs and Border Protection told the New York Post that officers arrested Juan Carlos Galan Luperon on last Saturday after they noticed he was "busting out of his pants."

"His pants appeared to be rather snug," an agency spokesman said in a statement.

The a 28-year-old Manhattan man, was in the US from the Dominican Republic.

Authorities say the cocaine was worth about $164,000 (£134k).

Luperon is expected to face drug smuggling charges in Brooklyn federal court.

This isn't the only amusing cocaine related story we've heard recently.

Couple Go Looking For Cocaine And Find Evidence Of Shark Attack

A huge great white shark is feared to be prowling off the British coast, with the man-eater even close to the public's favourite holiday beaches.

The scare comes after a half-eaten 4ft long seal was discovered lying on the beach at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, last month. Huge teeth marks had been gouged in the seal's flesh.

The terrifying find was made by Lauren Gillies, 25, and her boyfriend Matty Burgess, 29, had travelled five miles to go for a walk on the beach.

But this wasn't any typical romantic stroll, the pair were out looking for packages of millions of pounds worth of cocaine that have been washing up on Norfolk beaches over the last few days.

It's not quite what they were looking for, but none the less a shocking find.

Lauren, told TheLADbible: "We were walking to the gym along the beach and we're hunting any washed up parcels. We initially spotted it from afar, we thought that's pretty big we've hit the jackpot! And as we walked closer and closer we realised it wasn't narcotics it was a half a seal.

"We do often go beach walking but we've never come across something like it before. It was pretty shocking!"

I'm no detective, but I don't think it's a huge leap to assume the attack was the work of a massive man-eating shark that could soon be sinking its teeth into human flesh.

The resort where the seal was discovered, is one of a number of popular holiday seaside towns along the Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk coasts. The beaches are packed with thousands of holidaymakers every summer and face out on to the North Sea.

The North sea is the perfect hunting ground for a Great White because they are filled with prey fish like cod - and it's also apparently a perfect hunting ground for cokeheads.

A massive amount of cocaine, worth around £50 million, washed up on beaches in Norfolk last month, according to the National Crime Agency.

The holdalls and bags full of cocaine, weighing 360kg (793lbs), were washed up on Hopton beach and at a second beach near Caister. Police estimate that if it were cut and sold on it would be worth up to £50 million at street

Matthew Rivers, from the NCA's border investigation team, told the BBC: "We are now working with Border Force, the Coastguard Agency and Norfolk Police to try and establish how the bags ended up where they did, however it is extremely unlikely that this was their intended destination.

"This is obviously a substantial seizure of class A drugs and its loss will represent a major blow to the organised criminals involved."

The discovery was made after a member of the public spotted holdalls washed up on the beach and contacted police.
