We all know golf shafts are renowned for speed, but what about coke? According to police in Perth, Australia, a suspected drug smuggler was caught red-handed with a set of golf clubs allegedly packed with a kilo of cocaine.

According to police reports, a 55-year-old man was "acting strangely" while holding his golf clubs at Perth Airport, and when he was searched it came to light that he had smuggled cocaine inside the shafts (image above). 

His clubs were then x-rayed to reveal the substance inside...

Police in Western Australia have apparently issued more than 700 charges and have made more than 80 arrests, seizing a litany of drugs in the process including methylamphetamine, cocaine, MDMA, marijuana, ketamine, and LSD. Police also seized more than $600,000 in cash and 23 firearms.
