You Can't Make This Up

Not exactly sure how much of a security risk these were, but at the Miami International Airport (MIA), a man was detained last Thursday by TSA for trying to smuggle 7 snakes through the security scanner - inside his pants. They didn't say if they were venomous or not or how large, but what a place to hide them!

He also has 3 tortoises contained in a nylon bag - also inside his pants.

He was arrested for trafficing in illegal wildlife.

He must have looked a little lumpy, if nothing else.

You can't make this stuff up.
