A Colombian man, Franklin Zúñiga Vargas was recently arrested for carrying 11 kilos of marijuana in a framed ‘autographed’ photo of Barcelona striker, Leo Messi.

According to Colombian newspaper, El Heraldo, the 30-year-old carried the framed photo onto a city bus, where police were alerted and he was later arrested.

Vargas went to greater lengths to hide the drugs as he scrawled an autograph of the diminutive Argentine to make the photo more authentic.

The Colombian was detained at the local precinct of Sabanalarga, in the northern region of Galapa, which is mostly known as coffee country, and is now waiting for an audience with a judge, where he will be formally charged.
