10 Ridiculous Smuggling Attempts That Went Horribly Wrong



Smuggling is one of those things people have been doing, basically ever since there were laws. The first smuggler was likely trying to get just a little extra wheat or grain to their family or friends, or someone who would pay for it after the ruler of the area told them they couldn’t have that extra. These days, smuggling tends to be illegal because the items that are being carried are drugs or guns or something else that are going to hurt a lot of people. As the people in charge get smarter about how the items are being smuggled in, we see smugglers getting smarter as well. That doesn’t mean every smuggler is smart though. From time to time, you see some real dumbies and that’s what this list will detail. Check out 10 ridiculous smuggling attempts that went horribly wrong and let us know just how dumb these people are.
