46-year-old Heber Razuri Leon was on his way back from Peru last week when the Customs crew at Newark Airport noticed the deflated soccer balls in his bag were, well, heavy. You don't find too many deflated objects that are "unusually heavy," so customs opened them and bang-snow, just before Christmas.
Leon was apparently carrying almost five pounds of coke in his balls (ha!) and sandals. He was arrested and turned over to Homeland Security, joining a woman who stashed a pound of coke inside her “false bottomed bag” the day before.
Six pounds of cocaine worth over $300,000 recovered in just two days, not a bad job by the CBP.
