In the world of crime and smuggling there are some "smart" people - unfortunately they have no moral integrity.

One of the TSA officers observed that a woman's "boobs" were moving quite a bit while she was not moving otherwise! CITES, which is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Flora and Fauna) has some very severe penalties for those involved in such illegal activities!

Otis I have always liked Zig Zigglar and he says that exact thing on one of his tapes, it is about how you see yourself and he concluded that they think of themselves as criminals, he also said that if they put all that effort into normal legal work they would be better off but in the end they think about themselves as being a smuggler or in Zigs example, a forger, so they deserve what ever they get. I thought about how I would do that if I wanted to drill such a big long hole into what is essentially a tree and rather than rotate the cutter then I would rotate the tree, I would put a cutter head onto the end of a six inch pole that was long enough for my hole and being a steel pole then it would withstand the load then I would rotate the log on a set of rollers or better, in a cradle that held it straight, and then use hydraulic force to press it onto the cutter head and physics would do that cut, a lot of effort for zero gain makes me think that they did this many times before and did not get caught and somewhere they have a very high tech set up to drill those logs as this cannot be done in anyone's backyard, a setup that they likely cannot use again as the method has been discovered, they were caught this time and these logs are going to be looked at very closely now.

Must be a heavy smoker to smuggle that many cigarettes.
From my experience chasing smugglers, I think it more likely a snitch was involved but I do admire their creativity. Back in the 70's we used to encounter counterfeit hard-shell samsonite suitcases that were manufactured so the shell had two layers about 1/8" apart. The center void was filled with drugs. The carved statue in the photo is another example of how stuff is concealed. I can't remember if the "stuffing" was marijuana or hashish.

david_de I would think they used an auger of some sort. Probably when off loading the logs the weight was a big clue that something was up. Need a little work on their plug and glue skills. Maybe they cut and turned the plug from a section just before they bored the hole.

neville9999 I love it when those well made plans fall apart, they went to a lot of trouble to drill those holes and fill up the logs, James is correct as you can see the plug at the ends so they should have gone to more effort to do a more secret plug, all that effort and they lost it all, a big well done to the customs and excise men who found it all, Ha Ha Ha.

rwbaker Philip Morris is really going to be upset when they find you can grow cigarettes already boxed.
