Heroin Rug Smuggling Ring

Five British Muslims were arrested for attempting to smuggle 37 pounds of high grade heroin into the UK. The way they were smuggling the drugs is the interesting part. According to police reports, the smugglers were hiding the heroin inside of the 25 Afghan rugs that they were importing between pakistan and the Birmingham Airport. The heroin wad been woven into the rugs through long, thin paper tubes. The rugs contained £1.5 million ($2.5 million in USD) worth of heroin. The conspirators all received 10+ years in jail, one of them being a 41 year old mother of three children.

The quality of these rugs was most likely very low grade, as it would be extremely difficult to pack straws into a finely woven carpet. Just another reason to stay away from coarse quality, low grade commercially available rugs!
