$3 Million In Gold Allegedly Smuggled In People's Bums

Folks smuggling things in their bottoms is nothing new. Bungholes have seen this kind of action for years. But this latest crackdown shows how alleged criminals almost got away with nearly $US3 million in gold.

According news site Xinhua, South Korean custom officials have nabbed nine Taiwanese nationals for allegedly smuggling 60.75kg worth of gold, hiding it in the one place they knew they could really hide something in: their arses. The value of the gold is around $US3 million dollars. You can see the confiscated contraband above. Never have plastic gloves been more necessary.

The smuggling operation is accused of moving the gold through Gimhae International Airport in Busan, South Korea on numerous times.

The man at the operation's backend is apparently a 47 year-old Taiwanese man surnamed "Zhou". Reportedly, Zhou would recruit mules by asking them if they "wanted to go on a trip to Seoul." Then, after the mules carried the gold in their hindquarters, supposedly, they would drop the goods off at a subway station in Seoul for another member of the outfit.

Xinhua reports that since May, the group is believed to have smuggled gold into South Korea on 11 different occasions by dividing it into 270 pieces of gold, each weighing 225g. That sure is a lot of booty.

        Anyone else reckon the perps shat a brick when they were caught?

    Looks like they crack-ed the case wide open.

      You just can't stop can you?
      You deserve a pun-ishment

    You might say they were asked to make a deposit

    Dear gods, that's 6.6kg per person. A bag of spuds weighs less than that !
    I can only imagine how Customs discovered all nine of them - did they look for who Weeble wobbled when they sat down ?
