From the world of bizarre:



An unusual Canadian news story is getting plenty of attention from international press, and the headlines pretty much sum up the story.

From Russia Today: “Laying the Golden Eggs.”

From CNN: “Canadian Mint employee may have smuggled gold where the sun don’t shine.”

And, as German broadcaster Deutsche Welle delicately put it: “Canadian Mint employee accused of stealing gold hidden up his bum.”

Indeed, Barrhaven, Ont. resident Leston Lawrence, 38, is a hot topic at water coolers this week as he stands trial for allegedly stealing $180,000 of gold pucks from the Royal Canadian Mint and trading them for cash at an Ottawa mall.

That's a lot of gold!

He's innovative but this surely won't go down as one of the greatest heists in history since he got caught and his method isn't very glamorous.

I feel bad for the jeweler, lol.

The security must be really lax.
In the UK mint you get weighed in and out.
Any difference is noted and you're searched.

What kind of training did this dude put his sphincter thru to accomplish this feat!

Holy moly, that is about 10 pounds of gold!!!

Edit: Ahhh, I was thinking he did it all at once. Now it seems he did it several times?

That's one expensive crap! LoL

I imagine he will be rather popular in gaol where his method of smuggling contraband is almost an art form.

Question...what's gold going for per ounce these days?

Just wondering. Is he a gallon container or a pint.

In for a penny in for a pound?
