Elderly Couple Caught Smuggling Hundreds Cockroaches Through Airport in China

An airport in China seized a bag filled with hundreds of cockroaches that belonged to a senior couple who claimed that the insects were to be used for cosmetic purposes. The inconspicuous package passed through a security checkpoint in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on Saturday.

Little did the airport security know that the unassuming white plastic bag within the package contained about 200 live cockroaches in it. According to Shanghaiist, one cockroach managed to skitter out of the container, frightening one unfortunate female staff in the process.
