Couldn’t Improve on This Headline: “Smuggler Makes Ass of Himself”

Nice getaway car, Dood!

A would-be smuggler was arrested after trying to outrun border police with £300,000 of cigarettes in a horse and cart.

Police challenged Janos Jakab as he crossed Romania’s northern border with the Ukraine carrying nearly 100,000 packets of cigarettes and tobacco.

After a short chase police outran the cart and arrested Jakab.

A spokesman for the local border police said: “In general smugglers are becoming more and more sophisticated in their methods of getting contraband across borders. But this case proved the exception to the rule.

“We have a fleet of high-powered vehicles that can chase down the fastest cars. Outrunning our officers was never a possibility – even if he had a thoroughbred racehorse strapped to his cart.”
