In Japan, detained smugglers in gold bras (2 photos)

At the airport in the Japanese city of Hakodate, Hokkaido Prefecture, three smugglers were detained trying to illegally import gold worth half a million dollars (50 million yen) to the country. Gold in bars of spherical shape was hidden in secret pockets of bras. A total of 6 ingots with a total weight of 7.5 kg were seized.

According to the girls, a man with whom they met through a friend invited them to illegally import the precious metal. In Japan, for the import of gold worth more than 200 thousand yen, it is necessary to pay a high tax.
