This music will take you high: Drug smuggler caught with COCAINE GUITAR at Cancun airport (PHOTOS)

This music will take you high: Drug smuggler caught with COCAINE GUITAR at Cancun airport (PHOTOS)
An enterprising drug smuggler was no match for airport security in Cancun Mexico, after being caught attempting to slip through customs with a guitar “completely made of drugs,” presumably cocaine, according to authorities.

A passenger passing through Cancun International Airport was flagged for further screening after the individual’s red electric guitar was put through an X-ray scanner.

The instrument caught the attention of customs personnel due to its abnormal weight. A drug dog was called to the scene, which quickly sniffed out the presence of an illicit substance.

It’s not clear how much cocaine was packed into the phony instrument. A photograph shows a diligent police canine pawing at the guitar, as his handler inspects the illicit object.

In a separate case, Mexican officials also announced that they had seized 58 kilograms (128 pounds) of cocaine, wrapped in 50 individual packages, from a passenger from Ecuador.
