Hook Me Up, Elmo info
OCTOBER 26--A Colorado drug operation hid large quantities of methamphetamine inside Elmo dolls, according to federal investigators who yesterday announced the indictment of 21 alleged members of the ring. During a year-long probe, Drug Enforcement Administration agents seized an Elmo doll (seen in the below DEA evidence photo) in Barstow, California that was stuffed with four pounds of methamphetamine. When investigators opened up the plush doll's skull, they discovered the drug stash inside wrapped in plastic (as seen in this evidence pic). While Elmo has never previously been linked to narcotics distribution or use, the Sesame Street character appears to have no teeth, which frequently is seen in heavy meth users

I heard stories about people sneaking coke in the country with dogs. They cut open a dog's stomach, put in the bags, and sew it back up. Then when they get into the country, they cut open the dog and take out the drugs.

The ways things are smuggled is limited only by the imagination of the smuggler. Oh the stories I could tell but my BORTAG friends might not want me sharing. Suffice to say nothing in the news is ever a surprise.
