A Mexican man was caught by federal authorities while trying to smuggle seven pounds of cocaine into Arizona inside the seat of his wheelchair. U.S. Customs and Border Protection says that the 43-year-old was stopped at the Nogales port for further inspection of Sunday after authorities noticed something strange about his seat cushion.
Further probing produced five packages of cocaine from inside the seat cushion. Officials say the drugs have an estimated street value of $65,000. The man was arrested and handed over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
No word on whether or not he was actually handicapped.
