Customs officers in Barcelona recently caught a German pensioner with cocaine worth 277,000 pounds stored inside the neoprene shorts he was wearing underneath his jeans.

According to reports,160 canisters of the drug,weighing 6.6kg,had been sewn into his underpants.

The drug was discovered after customs workers were alerted to his suspiciously large behind.

“He wasn’t a big man but he had a very bulky rear end. Then when he sat down it was like he was sitting on eggshells. His backside and his legs looked like they belonged to a weightlifter,” as quoted by an official.
