Israeli Police Catch Smugglers With Speakers Loaded with 238 Pounds of Cocaine

Well, you've got to give them credit for chutzpah - that's nerve to you non-Yiddish speakers. Speaking of speakers, that's exactly what a gang of smugglers used as containers when trying to move 238 pounds of cocaine, but Israeli police weren't fooled.

Cue Crocket and Tubs and get Calderone ready with Phil Collins at his side all rocking the Versace for this story because Israeli police report that they arrested 27 people trying to smuggle 238 pounds of cocaine into their country.

 

The trick is that they were using speakers as their conduit. The exact brand of speakers were not known. With that kind of flake floating around you would hope that they would use something audiophile grade like a Wilson or Revel but you could also understand if they tried to get past customs with an Israeli product like Morel. Other fear that they smugglers used some of those white van "we just finished a nightclub a few blocks away and have some extra speakers that we can sell you really cheap" speakers and that was how they got caught. Then again, those drug sniffing dogs always help too.

An unnamed AV industry source points out that there are a number of audiophile speakers that actually have more profit margin than 238 pounds of Peruvian flake.
