(also) at the checkpoint ...

You may have already heard since I am kind of late on this one, but earlier this week a Palestinian woman was apprehended at a border checkpoint in Gaza for smuggling three crocodiles.
"But despite her loose fitting robe, suspicions were raised by her girth," an EU spokeswoman told the BBC.
Yeah, you read that right, the woman literally tried to wear the crocs across the border. But, hey, people do all the time in their designer boots and belts, right? This story has got all that beat.
"The reptiles, each around 40-50cm (15-20 inches) long, were taped to the woman's body beneath her dress."
Just look at'em! That's some craziness.
She told the border guards that her plan was to sell them to a zoo in Gaza City.
