Customs and Border Protection says the owner of that belly button, 35-year-old Tucson resident Calvin C. Howard III, actually had a couple more pounds of heroin strapped to his waist when he tried to walk into the United States through a pedestrian gate.
When agents tried to question Howard about the extra (extra) baggage around his waist, Howard tried to run back to Mexico, but the agents were able to take him into custody, according to CBP.
The two packages around his waist, plus the belly-button stash, totaled more than two pounds, according to the agency.
