Xbox 360 used to smuggle cocaine

RRRRAAAAAAOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLL!

According to recent reports, consumers are using their Xbox 360s more for entertainment, through music and video apps, than for gaming (XBOX HAS NO GAEMZ!) – but here’s something nobody expected people to use Microsoft’s console for:

Smuggling cocaine.

According to KFOX14, Carlos Valenzuela was pulled over by the fuzz in El Paso, Texas in a routine traffic stop for failing to use a turn signal. Instead of just issuing him with a ticket, police found him to be visibly nervous – and noticed he kept looking over at his satchel bag. Examination of the bag revealed a large bag of Columbia’s biggest export – the illicit white booger sugar that keeps supermodels upright in lieu of nutrition.

This prompted the sheriff’s department to bring in the K9 unit – who found two more bundles of South American nose candy hidden inside of an Xbox 360. Valenzuela was promptly arrested, and charged with “manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance” and placed on a $25,000 bail bond.

I highly suspect that’s voided his warranty – but it does prove that Xbox 360 keeps bringing the hits.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
