According news site Xinhua, South Korean custom officials have nabbed nine Taiwanese nationals for allegedly smuggling 134 pounds (60.75 kilograms) worth of gold, hiding it in the one place they knew they could really hide something in: their asses. The value of the gold is around $3 million dollars. You can see the confiscated contraband above. Never have plastic gloves been more necessary.

The smuggling operation is accused of moving the gold through Gimhae International Airport in Busan, South Korea on numerous times.

The man at the operation’s backend is apparently a 47 year-old Taiwanese man surnamed “Zhou”. Reportedly, Zhou would recruit mules by asking them if they “wanted to go on a trip to Seoul.” Then, after the mules carried the gold in their hindquarters, supposedly, they would drop the goods off at a subway station in Seoul for another member of the outfit.

Xinhua reports that since May, the group is believed to have smuggled gold into South Korea on eleven different occasions by dividing it into 270 pieces of gold, each weighing 8 ounces (225 grams). That sure is a lot of booty.
