A federal complaint says agents noticed part of a broken condom hanging out of 31-year-old Claudia Ibarra's pants as they patted her down at the port of entry in San Luis on Tuesday.

Ibarra, a U.S. citizen, was chosen for a pat-down because a Customs and Border Protection officer noticed she was acting very nervous.

Once officers found the broken condom during a pat-down in a secured room, officers asked Ibarra to remove her pants and underpants.

Ibarra complied, and one officer "was able to see a piece of plastic protruding from her groin area," according to the federal complaint.

"At that time, Ibarra admitted to having a package of methamphetamine concealed inside of her body," the complaint states.

Ibarra had to be taken to a hospital in Yuma because the package "could not be removed from her body," and the package of meth, weighing exactly one pound, was successfully removed.

Ibarra faces two federal drug charges.

The Vatican has frozen the assets of a monsignor who was arrested in a plot to smuggle 20 million euros ($26 million) into Italy and warned Friday that other people may be caught up in the investigation.

The Vatican's chief prosecutor on July 9 froze the accounts at the Vatican bank of Monsignor Nunzio Scarano, who was arrested by Italian authorities June 28 on accusations of corruption and slander. Scarano allegedly plotted to bring 20 million euros into Italy from Switzerland in July of last year aboard a private jet to avoid declaring it at customs.

A judge has refused to grant him house arrest; he remains at Rome's Queen of Heaven prison.

Smiley_emoticons_smile Shoot, that little bit of irony flew right over my head when I read the story.

Here's a story about another sinning smuggler, from your neck of the woods.

This dumb ass got arrested a couple of years back.

The Republic of Columbus reports that 21-year-old Sara Roseberry faces felony charges of dealing methamphetamine and trafficking with an inmate.

The Columbus woman is accused of concealing methamphetamine and tobacco in a Bible she left for a male friend who’s an inmate at the jail about 60 miles south of Indianapolis. Jail employees found the meth and tobacco inside the Bible’s binding.

Not sure if she got convicted or not, but bet authorities threw the book at her.

People Smugglers

These smugglers should go away for a very long time. Not only for their lack of concern regarding human life, but for the cost their illegal immigrant smuggling operation put on taxpayers even before the aliens reached their destination.

Nathan Lamb and Elizabeth Kay were transporting illegal immigrants from Mexico into Phoenix at $5k a pop. The U-Haul crammed with up to 20 people reached 180 degrees fahrenheit. Passengers had to be medically treated and transported by ambulance or airlift to hospitals. One man died.

Prosecutors are considering murder charges.

Between the license plate and NSA phone surveillance and boarder drones I think police could track and stop most of this before it turns lethal. In America today the gov't knows who you call on your phone, where and when you get your hair styled and frosted but don't know you are smuggling 20 illegals across the boarder.

CRACK COCAINE

[Image: s-BUTT-large.jpg?6]

Now that's crack cocaine.

A Phoenix woman was caught Tuesday allegedly trying to smuggle three pounds of cocaine into Arizona by taping it to her butt, the Associated Press reported.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say Dora Anna Gutierrez, 39, was carrying about $24,000 worth of drugs.

Gutierrez isn't the first person accused of getting creative when it comes to smuggling. Last month, on Oklahoma woman pleaded guilty to not only hiding three bags of meth in her butt, but concealing a loaded handgun in her vagina .

In November, a Delaware man was accused of hiding crack and marijuana in his prosthetic leg.

Smiley_emoticons_smile People are strange (and sometimes lazy and greedy).

I'm surprised HBO or Showtime hasn't come up with a good drama about creative smugglers, though truth is probably stranger than fiction in some of these cases.

I keep thinking about that couple who were smuggling immigrants at $5k each. They had a U-Haul, 20 people on board, and two old mattresses. Even considering the cost of gas, that's very low overhead. Had the morons considered ventilation, bottled water, and fruit wraps, they coulda made it work and cleared an easy $95k (before whatever pay-offs are involved). One run a month and they might have banked a million annually.

I'd never really thought about how lucrative something like that could be to organized traffickers and how that might factor into the problem of illegal immigration before.

I've watched these TV shows like “caught with crack in my ass“ well you know what I mean!

I'm always surprised at what risks people will take especially in the far east where drug trafficking often carries the fucking death penalty. There is currently a British woman in her fifties facing a firing squad in Bali I think it is?

Is it really worth the risk? Especially in the far east where they kill your ass?
We need to punish the French, ignore the Germans and forgive the Russians - Condoleezza Rice.

When I was in elementary school there was a program called SASA (students against substance abuse) and this kid Bruce sung Smugglers Blues by Glen Frye in the talent show contest. The SASA lady got all pissed off and told him it was inappropriate. That's one of those things I'll never forget, it makes me laugh every time I think about it.

People Smugglers in Australia; Government Crackdown July 21, 2013

THE GOVERNMENT will award bounty payments of up to $200,000 for those individuals who can provide information that will help the AFP crack down on people smugglers.

The announcement by Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare follows a breakthrough deal under which asylum seekers who come to Australia by boat will be resettled in Papua New Guinea.

Mr Clare today said the reward payments would help Australian authorities lock up people smugglers and smash their syndicates stretching from Australia to Indonesia and beyond to nations like Malaysia, Pakistan and Iraq.

"These people are peddling in misery and death. We need to shut this market down. That's why we are putting a bounty on their heads," Mr Clare said. "We have taken the product they are selling off the shelves, we also need to lock these people up."

The AFP currently has more than 60 personnel focused on thwarting people smuggling into Australia.

"There's not one syndicate, there's numerous and the commodity in this case, unfortunately, are human beings," said Australian Federal Police assistant Commissioner Ramzi Jabbour.

It is a huge political issue in this country, we have all had a gutful of these lowlifes. We even had a people smuggler passing himself off as a refugee, I think he fled the country when he got found out. Just think though, he was saying he was a genuine refugee (these visas are limited for those who are actually traumatised and fleeing persecution). They are really the scum of the earth.

Well, that's a hell of a bounty - $180,000 USD. Pretty sizable incentive for others to nark out people smugglers.

In regards to the refugees, I understand that starting this week, boat people will no longer have an opportunity to settle in Australia and that all refugees are now being immediately sent to Papua New Guinea. Those who are genuine candidates for asylum will be re-settled there and others will be shipped back from whence they came.

PNG will get financial compensation from the Australian government for hosting the refugees and Prime Minister Burke believes that this new policy is already discouraging refugees from heading for Australia with false hopes peddled to them by POS people smugglers.

You're really addressing the immigration problem down under. We Yanks, not so much.

Thanks HoTD. Yes many of these 'refugees' are 'economic migrants'. They destroy their documents of identity which makes it harder for Australia to verify whether they are actual refugees fleeing persecution. The thing is, that legitimate refugees waiting for placement in a UNHCR camp are not given placement because those coming by boat are 'queue jumpers' and are given priority over those waiting for years for placement. They take the limited visas given per year for this category.

My problem with this is, being tortured and persecuted for whatever the reason is a terrible thing, asylum seekers deserve safety and help from us. Those who are not legitimate do not. It is a terrible thing to say you are a refugee when you are not.

North Korean Meth - International Smuggling Operation Busted

[Image: Hkg9215732.jpg]

Five men ^ were arrested in September, extradited from Thailand, and are now on trial in Manhattan.

They're accused of trying to smuggle North Korean-produced meth to the Philippines for later distribution into the U.S. The men are from Hong Kong, Great Britain, and Thailand.

The meth was tested as 99% pure - much higher quality than meth produced elsewhere, according to experts.

I had no idea that North Korea was a meth-production mecca. Seems it was originally produced there to supply the growing meth demand in China, but has become a problem in North Korea as citizens there look to it as a kind of "medicine" and a means to suppress appetite in the midst of famine.

Earlier this month, Peruvian police arrested a Mexican asshole, 22-year-old Giussepe Tombolan, for trying to smuggle about 2.9 kilograms of cocaine to his country inside the bellies of two St. Bernard dogs.

Local Peruvian police chief Basilio Grossman said the drugs were placed inside the bodies of the large dogs during an operation in a hotel room.

Police veterinarians removed bags of drugs from a male dog named Bombon and a female called Lola (pictured above).

The dogs were suffering from grave peritonitis, an infection of the tissue lining the abdomen’s inner wall, as well as high fevers and vomiting. One of the dogs died.

Grossman said it was the first time Peruvian authorities had discovered someone trying to smuggle drugs inside dogs.

There needs to be a special place for people who do these horrible things to animals. That way people can go beat the hell out of them whenever they need to release a some stress and anxiety. Hell, they could even make a reality show out of it and call it "Abuser Abuse." I'm betting Animal Planet channel would pick it up and run with it....
