Today in Found at the Border: Officers at the border in Nogales found 4.5 pounds of meth hidden inside an accordion.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an 18-year-old Mexican citizen attempted to take the accordion through a pedestrian gate on Monday.

Turns out, he wasn't headed to Mariachi band practice, as officers found the bundle of meth wrapped in black tape, and stashed inside the accordion.

Both the meth -- valued at more than $13,000 -- and the accordion were seized, and the teenager was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

It might not be the most creative smuggling attempt, but it's better than stuffing pounds of meth inside one of your bodily orifices.

 I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life. For more info visit my user name link..
