Officers found in total 797 methamphetamine pills (ya bah), 4.7 grams of crystal meth (ya ice), 105g of marijuana and 53 counterfeit B1,000 notes in the bag.

What amazes me is that the police have all these neat signs on the table, weights and quantities. How long does it take to make these signs and how long before the accused gets to sit behind them?

It's the same mentality with any drug smuggler. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. With the amount of drugs awash in the country, they win more times than they lose. Easy money if you can get away with it.

A real genius. Why in the world would you ever load up your bags like that when you know you'll be going through airport scanners??? Dumb as a boot.
