Ever wondered how much meth you can squeeze into your sneakers? Between 800 grams and a kilo per pair, that's how much, apparently. Ten people from a Malaysian "tour group" were caught at the Auckland Airport in New Zealand yesterday, each with roughly the same amount of meth in their shoes totaling just over $8 million (USD). Customs agents were tipped off because the smugglers carried "itineraries that were in English but (they) couldn't speak English."
If convicted each person could get life in prison which, if you consider that Malaysia likes to hand out death penalties for drug trafficking, might not be so bad! Perhaps a crystal lining, if you will. Also, did you know that meth production is so hot in Malaysia right now?
