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