TSA Stops Smugglers with Animals in Their Pants
Within a matter of days TSA agents on the east and west coast stopped two possible smugglers. First in Miama, TSA agents saw something strange in a man's pants as he went through the body scanner. After closer examination they found 7 small exotic snakes, and 3 turtles that were in women's hosiery under the man's pants. Safe to say the man did not make his flight to Brazil. U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials seized the reptiles and the man was arrested and charged with violating the Lacey Act.
The next day at the Los Angeles airport, a woman was picked out for a pat down as her clothes looked overly bulky. The woman was heading to China. The TSA agents found two endangered birds, wrapped in socks, one taped to the woman's leg and one to her chest. She missed her flight as well and was arrested on suspicion of smuggling and exporting an endangered species out of the United States. From WECT6.com.
