How do you smuggle 48,000 cans of beer into Saudi Arabia?


Well, actually you don't. But one smuggler tried by disguising them with Pepsi labels.

The attempt was foiled at the Al Batha crossing between the United Arab Emirates and the kingdom when police discovered the fake labels.

“A truck carrying what first seemed to be normal cans of the soft drink Pepsi was stopped and after the standard process of searching the products, it became clear that the alcoholic beers were covered with Pepsi’s sticker logos,” said Al Batha border General Manager Abdulrahman al-Mahna, according to Al Arabiya.

Alcohol is completely prohibited in Saudi Arabia, and according to Mahna, this is just another innovative example of how smugglers are trying to get it into the country.

Of course, police apprehended the smuggler.
