Photo: Woman caught at airport with crack-o-lanterns

The pumpkins were unusually heavy so they were scanned using an X-ray scanner

Border agents found a spooky Halloween surprise Thursday in three pumpkins someone tried to smuggle through the Montreal airport, authorities said — about four pounds of suspected cocaine.

The pumpkins were hollowed out, filled with about 2 kilograms of white powder in bags and recapped, the Canada Border Services Agency said. They were being transported Thursday morning by a suspect authorities would identify only as a female traveler arriving at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.

A spokesman for the agency said the pumpkins seemed to be a little too heavy, so they were sent through an X-ray scanner. The Mounties were called in once the bags were discovered.
