All he wanted was some financial gain! Francis Gurahoo flew from Guyana to JFK while smuggling 34 singing birds stuffed inside of luggage. Can you imagine when he was randomly selected for a search? Hell yeah authorities found all of the singing finches each inside its own hair curler.
Francis told the police that each bird could potentially sell for $3k. Bird singing competitions are big business in Brooklyn and Queens and are based on how many chirps they can chirp in a minute. My man had his family post his $25k bail after being charged with unlawful smuggling. I totally understand the stress he must have had during the flight. I've been super nervous before sneaking a bottle of sauce past TSA! Dreamland BBQ sauce is the best!
