Man Arrested for Smuggling Cocaine in an Exercise Bike
This is probably the strangest tale about exercise bikes we’ve ever heard, news has just reached us from down under that a Canadian man has been arrested and charged with importing cocaine into the country packed inside an exercise bike.
He was arrested on Wednesday the 7th of June 2011 as Australian Federal Police and border officials targeted a cargo crate coming in from Canada. The fly wheel on the exercise bike was drilled and contained a white powder which after laboratory tests was found to be 5kg cocaine.
The police caught the man when they let the delivery arrive at his house and subsequently placed him under arrest. The man has not yet been named but was charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of an unlawfully imported border control drug.
Unfortunately for him it looks like he could be facing life in prison plus a massive fine of $825,000 Australian dollars.
