Is nothing sacred?
How thick was the framed picture if they could stuff 10 pounds of pot behind each one
EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- The U.S. Border Patrol says agents found a stash of marijuana coming across the border in El Paso in an unusual spot: tucked behind a framed portrait of Jesus. A Border Patrol statement issued Wednesday said the bust was made just before 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Bridge of the Americas in El Paso. A 22-year-old Mexican woman arrived at the port of entry from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, in a sport-utility vehicle. According to the statement, she told agents that she had nothing to declare but some framed art.
Cesar the drug-sniffing dog found otherwise. He was drawn to three framed pictures of Jesus Christ in the SUV. Agents found 30 bundles totalling about 31 pounds behind the backing of the three pictures.
The Border Patrol said it turned the woman to El Paso police for prosecution.

I wonder if they thought Jesus would protect their dope?

Very well, give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar--and to God what belongs to God."
It kind of fits in this case minus the spelling.

If the smugglers cared about anything sacred, they wouldn't be in that business.

I've been through this port: .35 cents at an unmaned turnstyle to walk into Mexico, getting back in to the US was the tough part. Rumor has it that the border guards were 1st tipped off b/c Jesus' eyes were bloodshot in the paintings. Could just be media speculation though...

Those gangs tend to be very "religious" in their own eyes, and pretty superstitious as well.
