Meta-smuggling

Customs officers in Arizona seized a package of heroin that was being smuggled *inside* a larger block of cocaine.

"This appears to be the first ever report of concealing heroin bricks inside cocaine bricks. It is postulated that this unusual concealment technique was utilized to deceive mid-level transporters, who charge higher rates for heroin shipments versus cocaine shipments."

From the DEA's always entertaining "Microgram Bulletin," a compendium of new smuggling techniques.
