Poor rock stars: Squier Strat electric guitar seized in Italian customs, full of cocaine


When I first saw this photo, my naive mind assumed it was a very poorly made cake with black marzipan icing, but on closer inspection…yep, that looks like Pete Doherty’s annual intake of Columbian marching power.

The black Squier Strat electric guitar was reportedly filled to overflowing with €2,500,000 worth of pure coke, and attempted to be smuggled from Costa Rica to Rome by an unnamed 30-year old suspect. Not surprisingly, customs officials spied the powdery residue coating the guitar, denying Europeans 3kg of suitably rawk blow. Someone, console Tara Palmer-Tomkinson!
