According to a federal complaint, Gutierrez admitted to being paid $800 to bring the cocaine from Nogales, Mexico, to Phoenix.

This is the third time in just a couple of weeks that officers at the border have found drugs in someone's shorts: A 17-year-old kid was found with heroin duct-taped to his thighs in San Luis, and a 16-year-old kid was found with a pound-and-a-half of meth stuffed in his underwear in Nogales.

Gutierrez, a U.S. citizen, faces a federal cocaine-smuggling charge.

so dora the explora got busted while swiper got through with the big load!


Again, the lack of creativity is what is most disappointing about this.  If you're gonna try to sneak those drugs across the border, at least get creative and show some imagination or put some work into it.  Just stuffing it into your pants or taping it to your ass is bullshit - at least put some effort into the endeavor.
