The Berks County police in Reading, Pennsylvania, has arrested four individuals for allegedly smuggling cocaine inside of Xbox consoles.
We’re not even talking about the latest Xbox one consoles or even the Xbox 360. The models these suspects opted for was the original Xbox console which was used to smuggle thousands of grams of the white powder.
Felix Josue Rodriguez-Pabon, 22, Nelson Audelin Martinez, 26, Wilson Michael Herrera, 20, and Yefries Guillen Herrera, 22, all of Reading, Pa., are charged with delivery of a controlled substance and other related offenses.
According to the official police report, officials believe the racket was used to pass over 1100 grams of cocaine with a possible street value of $100,000 from one contact to another through the consoles. It’s unknown as for how long this setup has been running but unluckily for them, undercover agents were able to witness a “shipment” going down and were successful in bringing down the ones involved.
At the scene, the police found more than one Xbox console, with the assorted Xbox accessories. The officers involved in the situation are continuing to investigate.
