Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Martijn Baars for sending in today’s report. From the International File in Rotterdam, The Netherlands comes the story of a French "tourist" who got a little nervous when he spotted a couple of policemen taking a look at him as he waited inside a train station. He got nervous enough that he decided to light up a cigarette. Bad idea. He should have taken a look at the signs all around the place. Smoking is banned at train stations in Holland. When the cops came over to talk to him they couldn’t help but notice a suspicious bulge. A quick check revealed the bulge was 2.3 kilos of heroin which our bozo had strapped to his chest. Busted! Hopefully for him the jails aren’t smoke-free, too.
