Man Tried to Smuggle 6.6 kg of Cocaine in Pants with 160 Pockets
A man was arrested for trying to smuggle 6.6 kilograms of cocaine with his custom made pants. Officials at El Prat de Llobregat airport in Barcelona became suspicious when they saw him waddled through with unusually massive backside and thighs. Baggy denim cut-offs did not help the drugs mule.

The green neoprene pants contained more than 160 pockets for canisters of cocaine.
Drugs investigators were determined to get to the bottom of it when they noticed the smugglers huge backside as he waddled through the airport.
"He wasn't a big man but he has a very bulky rear end and was walking very strangely," said a spokesman.
"Then we saw that whenever he sat down it was like he was sitting on eggshells.
"His backside and his legs looked like they belonged to a weightlifter. We've seen all sorts of stunts but the big pants were a first for us."
