A traveller has been arrested at Canada’s Montréal-Trudeau Airport for attempting to smuggle three pumpkins packed with what is suspected to be cocaine.
The substance is now in the hands of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for further investigation.

“Border services officers work tirelessly to intercept narcotics regardless how they are hidden”, said a spokesman said.
“This seizure helps eradicate narcotics from our community by stopping potential traffickers from using our international airports for their illicit cross-border activities.”
Drug smuggling appears to have has entered a creative new age of late. In July, an American woman was found to have hidden a bag of crystal meth between her buttocks. It's probably worth noting Christie Dawn Harris also had a loaded gun stashed inside her vagina.
And earlier this month, a cat strapped with bags of cannabis was found sneaking into a Moldovan prison.
