Mohamed Rafi, 35, may have set a record as a “mule” on an Air India flight. The Sri Lankan arrived in Chennai and was stopped by police who were tipped off that there would be a mule on the flight. They eventually found 2,060 diamonds in his stomach.
The police became suspicious after the man appeared uncomfortable sitting in the interrogation room and complained that he “had the piles.” They proceeded to solve the case with laxatives and bananas. The man confessed that he had swallowed the diamonds in 42 condoms shortly before the flight. This was his third run as a diamond mule.

I guess eyeore would be out of the question as a viable ideal solution.
and he must have just sparkled a little to much to keep getting the governments attention.
I thought laxatives and bananas would cancel each other out. Bananas tend to be constipating, laxatives… well, you know.
They proceeded to solve the case with laxatives and bananas.
ah yes, the old “laxatives and bananas” trick. they use a variation of this at gitmo only you don’t eat the banana.
My cousin was a child when his family fled Belgium as the Nazis threatened. The family’s diamond shop inventory was sewn into his teddy bear, which he was instructed to never leave his hand until they got to New York. He dutifully dressed, ate and bathed with that bear firmly in his grasp. The family’s business thrives today.
