While much of North America was out stuffing candy in bags for Halloween, one woman was busy stuffing coke into pumpkins.
The woman apparently tried to smuggled three cocaine-filled pumpkins into Canada on Thursday via the Montreal airport. She stashed the squash in her luggage, according to the Smoking Gun, but they were discovered during a search.
Investigators thought the pumpkins seemed oddly heavier than normal, so they X-rayed them and found "suspicious masses" inside. When the border agents then stabbed the pumpkins they pulled out a white powder. Eventually, the agents discovered the pumpkins contained bags of cocaine.
The investigators confiscated the drugs and the woman is facing charges. Presumably she spent Halloween night dressed in a not-so-sexy prisoner "costume."
