Customs Agents Find Coffin Packed with 67 Pounds of Pot in Back of Hearse

“Don’t you laugh as the hearse goes by, for you may be the next to die…” or get busted near Tombstone, Arizona with a bunch of weed in a casket.

Yes, that happened.

The driver of a shiny white hearse, one young gringo whose name has not been released, could not get his story straight when he was stopped by Willcox Border Patrol agents near the aptly named city of Tombstone.

So the agents decided to do something most funeral directors would not recommend: they opened the casket.

In a macabre discovery—well, maybe not for a border agent—there was no corpse inside, but rather 67 pounds of weed covered in manure to mask the smell.

Wouldn’t a fragrant embalming oil have been more appropriate and certainly less obvious? At least try to confuse the canine unit that was brought in after agents noted “inconsistencies” in the man’s story.

The hearse driver, 28, apparently hadn’t thought of that in his haste to get wherever he was going and cash in on his estimated $33,000 worth of weed.

What apparently confused the spaced out hearse driver was when a Customs and Border Protection agent asked him about the “nature of the trip.”

When you’re driving a hearse with a closed coffin in the back, your destination choices are rather limited.

That’s how the weed-hauling hearse driver blew it. But he has plenty of time to think about his mistake.

He is now sitting in a jail cell, having been arrested Saturday night by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on suspicion of narcotics and contraband smuggling. The border guards also seized the manure-coated weed.

Let’s hope the worms haven’t started playing pinochle on it yet.
