Some drug-smugglers in Columbus, New Mexico, got in some big trouble trying to cross the border. They brought back some very special dreamcatchers from Mexico. There were 1.6 pounds of methamphetamine found inside of the rings on the dreamcatchers.
The drugs were found in rubber tubes attached to the pieces of art. It was one of the weirdest cases of smuggling these officers had ever seen. Walter White would be proud.

CBP Columbus Port Director Robert Reza said:
”This is one of the most unusual smuggling episodes we have ever encountered. Smugglers will try to conceal their drug loads in everyday items like soft drink cans, framed artwork and other seemingly innocent items. CBP utilizes numerous inspection techniques that help identify and stop these shipments.”
The 25-year-old woman (who chose not to be named) responsible was crossing into the United States from Nuevo Casas Grandes in Mexico’s Chihuahua state. Also, she was travelling with her eight-years-old and one-year-old daughters.
