Man arrested for smuggling cocaine in his Xbox 360

Brought to you by Destructoid:

Driving around with mass quantities of illegal narcotics isn't exactly the smartest idea in the world, but if that's something you plan on doing you could learn a thing or two about what not to do from this tale about a man, the police and an Xbox.

Upon being pulled over by the West Texas fuzz Carlos Valenzuela, 42, appeared visibly nervous and repeatedly looked at a bag in his Mercedes' passenger seat. After discovering a bundle of the devil's dandruff in the vehicle, the El Paso County Sheriffs' Office brought in a K-9 unit that promptly uncovered an additional two bricks of cocaine hidden inside an Xbox 360. 

In total close to four pounds of nose candy was recovered from inside the vehicle. Valenzuela was arrested, charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and placed on a $25,000 bond. In the end, the real tragedy in all of this was that yet another innocent game console has lost its life in the War on Drugs.
