Oz drug smugglers sunk by seal

A group of drug smuggler's luck ran out after police seized $900m worth of drugs in Australia. Five have been arrested after police uncovered the drugs on a western Australian island on Sept. 3.
Two suspects were found on Burton Island with almost 2,000 pounds of cocaine and ecstasy concealed under seaweed. After being spotted, police say the suspects attempted to flee but were stopped by a massive sleeping seal blocking their path. They woke it up, and it was not in a good mood as it jumped up and bellowed at them.

Apparently that was more than enough for them to think twice about taking it on. Police arrested Antoine Robert Dicenta, 51, and Kurt Palmer, 34. Three others were also arrested and charged in Perth
