    conducted a raid????? or he was nabbed while attempting to bring it along with him? IF the customs are to do the " JOB RIGHT" they can raid so many places and so many businesses and their storing facilities.... They just want to FEEL good and make the masses " THINK" thet they are doing the job right.....
