Customs agents on the US-Mexico border arrested a Mexican citizen for attempting to smuggle methamphetamine stuffed inside two partially-emptied cans of nacho cheese sauce and one can of jalapenos. The driver told the agents he was returning to the US after shopping for groceries in Mexico. But they smelled a rat when the cans seemed too heavy to contain merely cheese and jalapenos. With the help of an X-ray machine, the agents discovered seven pounds of meth—worth an estimated $140,000—smothered in cheese sauce.
