Heroin Smuggler Comes Up With the Worst Cover Story Ever

A Virginia man smuggling a quarter of a million dollars' worth of heroin blew his cover making up the world's dumbest alibi.

Jefferson County police pulled a 64-year-old man over for an obscured license plate on the man's GMC SUV on Monday night. The responding officer noticed the man appeared "extremely nervous" and asked him where he was going.

The man said he was on his way to Houston to visit with a sick elderly friend — in a children's hospital. Apparently the first place he could think ofwhen officers asked him where his friend had been hospitalized was Texas Children's Hospital.

Officers then asked to search the car and quickly found a satchel in the back seat with $250,000 worth of heroin wrapped in bundles.

He's being held on $100,000 bail.
