There’s no telling what people will try to pack in their luggage when traveling. Two passengers were caught attempting to smuggle 125,619 lobster seeds into Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Indonesia last week.
Security officers intercepted four suitcases filled with plastic bags carrying the lobster seeds, probably pearl and sand lobsters, hidden in the clothes. Officials became suspicious of the suitcases was left behind in the baggage handling area.
The Aviation Officials say that the thousands of lobster seeds, which are used for farming lobster, have an estimated value of $1.31 million. Police are still searching for the suspects, who, if found guilty, could face up to six years in prison and pay a hefty fine.
