Trying to Sneak Drugs into a Music Festival? Don’t Do This.

People will always attempt to sneak drugs into gigs, even when they know cops will be there with sniffer dogs. Take the case of a group of dudes who thought they were gonna smuggle some Molly into the Listen Out festival in Australia.

Each of them strapped the MDMA to their little fellas, wrapped in plastic. One of them went even further, smearing some Vegemite around in hopes of confusing the drug dogs.

Instead, the dog went right for the crotch and–

Port Phillip Acting Inspector Stuart Bailey said the man was one of 24 people found trying to take drugs into this year’s event at Catani Gardens, where a woman last year died from an overdose.

“We found several males had the drugs wrapped in plastic and wrapped around their penis,” he said.

“One smothered his MDMA in Vegemite believing the … dog would not be able to detect his drugs. Wrong!”
