When smuggling controlled substances across international borders, it seems like a bit much to try and get away with stuffing 2.4 pounds worth into your sneakers.
That thought didn't occur to Carlos Fierro, 51, who was arrested last week after a U.S. border patrol agent at the Paso Del Norte port of entry in Texas noticed that Fierro's shoes looked particularly bulky. He was taken to an inspection area and asked to remove his Air Jordans, which he admitted were filled with an unknown drug.
Officers found one sizable bundle of methamphetamine in each shoe.
Police have seized the meth – no word on weather Fierro will get his prized team Jordans back.
