    According to the U.S. Customs and Board Protection, the 3,738 “prohibited” bongs arrived from China on Oct. 3 — labeled as “gravity pipes” — and were addressed to a location in Los Angeles County, Calif.CBP officers detained the shipment and submitted photos and documentation to international trade experts at the agency’s Consumer Products and Mass Merchandising Centers of Excellence and Expertise.

    Last week CBP import specialists confirmed that the apprehended goods, worth $ 56,033, “violated U.S. laws on the importation of drug paraphernalia,” the agency said Wednesday in a news release.The announcement came just two days after CBP officers seized more than $13,000 in unreported cash that was concealed in an envelope inside a carry-on bag.

    A couple traveling from the D.C. airport — who had reported that they were carrying a combined total of $10,500 — had a combined currency of $23,641, instead.The money was seized “for violating U.S. currency reporting laws” and the couple was later released “with $641 as a humanitarian relief.”

    Federal law requires travelers to report all currency $10,000 or greater to CBP officers.“The seizures of glass bongs and unreported currency may seem innocuous at first,” Daniel Escobedo, CBP area port director for Washington, D.C.

    “However, they illustrate the resolve and commitment that Customs and Border Protection officers and specialists [do] every day to enforce our nation’s laws, to enhance our nation’s economic vitality through lawful international trade and travel, and to help keep our citizens safe,” he added.

    According to the agency, CBP officers seized an average of $386,000 every day last year “in unreported or illicit currency along our nation’s borders.
