Despite import restrictions that have caused tons of premium cheese to be destroyed in an act of “fromagicide,” people in Russia still want their dairy favorites. And where there’s a demand, there’s bound to be someone willing to provide a supply. As such, police in Russia say they’ve busted an international contraband cheese ring worth an estimated $30 million. That’s a lot of cheddar, eh? (Sorry.)
People apparently don’t take courthouse security screenings as seriously as they do airport checkpoints. Brass knuckles, butcher knives, razors and hand grenades are among the contraband confiscated by Tampa-area court officials.
