Cloned UPS Truck Caught Smuggling Ton of Pot

"Synchronizing" is a tough word to spell, even if you aren't high from the ton of marijuana you're trying to smuggle. But you'd think after going to all the trouble of creating this UPS lookalike, the smugglers would invest some of their profit in a dictionary.

The truck, which was carrying 2,118 pounds of marijuana, had a homemade license plate that caught the attention of the state trooper who pulled it over last month in southern Arizona.

When the trooper walked around to the side and saw this sign, he knew he'd "better get the canine," says Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves.
