Puzzled U.S. border police arrested a Mexican smuggler with 88 pounds (40-kg) of cheese hidden in a special compartment in his truck, police said on Friday.
Customs and Border Protection spokesman Roger Maier said officers at the port of entry in Columbus, New Mexico, referred a Chevrolet pickup for a routine secondary examination on Wednesday.
Officers using an X-ray machine saw the outline of 16 bulky packages stashed in a secret compartment behind the seat, which they initially believed were packets containing illicit drugs.
"Generally if you see something (with the X-ray machine) you expect it to be narcotics, but this turned out to be cheese," Maier told Reuters by telephone.
Officers regularly impound drugs including marijuana, heroin and cocaine at border crossings from Mexico, although Maier said the smuggled cheese haul was unusual.

mel goes b-a-n-a-n-a-s
In an extraordinary rant at the officer who arrested him in Malibu, the 50-year-old actor and director is accused of "blurting out a barrage of anti-Semitic remarks". According to the officer's report, these included references to "f---ing Jews", and then: "The Jews are responsible for all the war in the world." He then asked the deputy: "Are you a Jew?"well, mel, you're responsible for some of the worst films in the world.
Deputy Mee's report says Gibson told him he "owned Malibu" and would spend all his money to get even. As he was driven in handcuffs to the Lost Hills sheriff's station, he told the officer he would "get even".
"I'm going to f--- you," Gibson is alleged to have said, calling the deputy "you motherf---er".
"You're going to regret you ever did this to me."
