Some people may have joked about the Xbox’s size and compared the Microsoft gaming system to a VCR, but one drug smuggler might have just taken advantage of the size of the system. A report on Business Insider revealed that US border agents  discovered an Xbox filled with 3 pounds of meth.

According to an official release to the US Customs and Border Protection Newsroom, a 16-year-old male from Nogales, Sonora, Mexico attempted to enter the US  through the Morley Pedestrian crossing with the console. The console, nonetheless, was packed with more than 3 pounds of methamphetamine which is worth almost $10,000. Border protection officers  then quickly found the drugs after a canine alerted to the gaming system.  The male was ultimately detained and turned over to Homeland Security Investigators.
