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.

RE: SMUGGLERS' BLUES

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....

Hong Kong Smuggler Gets Caught in the Ringer

iPhones are extremely popular in China. After import taxes, they sell for about $1,000 USD retail. Hong Kong's import taxes are lower and iPhones there can be purchased retail for about $820 USD.

So, an enterprising Hong Kongese smuggler decided to sneak a bunch of iPhones into China, sell them at lower than Chinese retail prices, and pocket the profits.

Despite his clever plan, the smuggler was caught by airport security and arrested. He aroused security's suspicions because he was walking as if he was carrying something extremely heavy, but was carrying very light bags. When he was put through the metal detector, the jig was up.

Workers at a cold storage facility in Illinois are being credited with intercepting a massive marijuana haul spread across 1,512 boxes of frozen avocado pulp.

In total more than of a ton of weed was seized with an estimated street value of $10 million. Staff at the suburban facility in Lyons became suspicious of the weight of the shipment.

They also questioned its instructions for an 'urgent pick-up'.

The company, Frozavo, is based in Michoacán, western Mexico. Their website says they ship to five countries.

However there is no suggestion yet the company were responsible for what was in their packages.

Pissed-off, Out-foxed H-Smugglers -- Busted!

Homeland Security Investigations and Drug Enforcement agents carried out a search in the Bronx on Monday and uncovered $4.1 million in cash and heroin which could have been sold in as many as 900,000 packets on the street.

Suspects Jorge Pizarro, 42, Nelson Deleon, 40, and Miguel Angeles, 28, were arrested on drug charges. Pendejos.

The alleged drug traffickers are accused of using U-Haul’s to truck massive amounts of heroin hidden inside wooden furniture from Mexico to New York, law enforcement sources said.

During the raid on the storage facility, authorities found a bottle of fox urine that was used to disguise the smell of the drugs.

Authorities had long suspected there was something going on and HSI and DEA agents had been monitoring monthly shipments of 'furniture' in and out of a storage facility.

'The potential toll on human lives represented by this amount of drug money, carefully packaged and hidden in hydraulic compartments for interstate traffickers, cannot be measured,' said Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan. Authorities are also reportedly investigating ties to Mexican cartels.
