HE wasn't smuggling drugs or illegally trafficking people across the border and his contraband can't have been worth much to begin with.
But that didn't stop one man trying to smuggle illegal meat across the Mexico, US border - 385 pounds of bologna to be precise.   
Yes he's definitely in a pickle after being fined $1000 for his trouble because it's illegal to bring the bologna across the border because it's made of pork and has the potential to introduce foreign animal diseases into the U.S. pork industry. The 33-year-old Mexican man might have made a real pigs ear of his smuggling attempt but he has however set a record for the largest ever bologna bust  recorded at the Santa Teresa crossing NM.
