This tombstone was shipped from Jamaica to Cincinnati, where US Customs and Border Protection at the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport discovered it was filled with 50 pounds of marijuana.
Officers questioned last week why someone would ship a tombstone from Kingston, Jamaica, to London.
An X-ray machine revealed packages of the drug in a metal box, wrapped in metal mesh and hidden inside the hollowed-out concrete marker.
The stone bears the name of 35-year-old Delroy Senior. Part of its inscription reads, “your place no one can fill.”
Authorities estimate the marijuana’s street value at about £34,000. They have no suspects.
