Police Catch Speeding Hearse Full of Caviar

Police in Russia pulled over a speeding hearse that was supposed to be carrying a corpse to a funeral in Khabarovsk. The vehicle had signs attached to its windshield: one said “funeral,” while the other had a portrait of the deceased. However, a search found there was no body in the coffin. Instead, they found 1100 pounds of canned caviar -worth about $156,000! The driver and another person in the hearse were arrested, both denying they knew anything about the smuggled caviar.    

The fishing of sturgeon - which are traditionally associated with caviar - is banned in Russia to try to stop a decline in the population. But a study found that in 2010, only 19 out of 244 tonnes of caviar produced in the country were made legally.

The search was captured on a phone video. -via Arbroath
