Woman Caught Trying to Smuggle Vodka by Hiding It in a Sandwich

Woman Caught Trying to Smuggle Vodka by Hiding It in a Sandwich

Security guards found a whole bottle of vodka hidden in a woman’s sandwich

Security guards at a U.K. racetrack were amused to find a whole bottle of vodka hidden inside a woman's salami sandwich.

Move over, Sherlock Holmes. must be some of the most observant people around, because last week they caught a woman trying to sneak into a horse race with a bottle of vodka hidden inside a sandwich.

Concessions prices at movies, races, and sports and music events are notoriously high, especially for alcohol. A lot of people try to avoid the high prices by sneaking illicit food and drinks past security in purses, pockets, or backpacks, but last week a woman took it a step further. According to the Telegraph, she tried to smuggle a 350-milliliter bottle of vodka into the racetrack by hiding it inside a large baguette and trying to pass it off as a sandwich. She even wrapped the bottle in salami and tomato.

The salami sandwich was a very good disguise, but Southwell security guards noticed something was wrong as soon as they picked up the woman’s bag. A bottle of vodka is a lot heavier than any normal sandwich.

Southwell Racecourse staff thought it was so funny they posted it to their Twitter feed. According to Fox News, staff would normally confiscate the food and alcohol, but this time they were so impressed with the woman’s ingenuity, they told her they’d keep it at the office for her and she could have it back after the race. She ever came back for it, though.


You can't help but applaud the ingenuity of this failed attempt to sneak booze into a racecourse

“Caught bread-handed.”

With eagle-eyed security folks rummaging through your bags, it&rsquos never been harder to sneak alcohol into sporting venues.

One woman found that out the hard way when she attempted to hide a bottle of vodka inside a sandwich during a trip to Southwell Racecourse on Sunday.

The booze was duly confiscated, but not before security staff took a picture of the ingenious scheme for posterity.

What&rsquos more, they were clearly in a generous mood.

&ldquoWe gave her the sandwich back but kept the bottle,&rdquo Southwell executive director Mark Clayton said. &ldquoOur policy normally is to confiscate and bin, but we decided she showed so much innovation that we would keep it and let her collect it after racing.

&ldquoShe didn&rsquot. Maybe if it was Grey Goose she would have done.&rdquo

And while the method was new, the sight of racegoers trying to sneak contraband through security certainly isn&rsquot.

&ldquoWe do bag searches for every meeting. We find plenty of alcohol,&rdquo Clayton said. &ldquoPeople are advised that alcohol is not allowed to be brought on site.

&ldquoThey still bring it in their droves. They hide it, we find it, we bin it.&rdquo
