BIRD EGGS FOUND IN THE CROTCH OF ALLEGED SMUGGLER IN AUSTRALIA

SYDNEY -  Australians call tiny swimming trunks “budgie smugglers”, but the term might have new meaning after customs officials at Sydney’s airport said on Wednesday that they found 16 wild-bird eggs in the crotch of a passenger’s pants.
The 39-year-old Czech man arrived on Tuesday on a flight from the Middle East when customs officials selected him for a baggage examination, Australian Customs and Border Protection Service said in a statement.
Officers conducted a frisk search of the man and allegedly found 16 small eggs concealed in his groin area, the statement said.
There was no word on whether it was budgies of small parrots also known as budgerigars that were allegedly smuggled. 
The species has yet to be identified.
The man, whose name has not been released, was to appear in a Sydney court on Wednesday.
He will be charged under environmental protection laws with attempting to import regulated live specimens without a permit. The charge carries maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and a fine of A$170,000.
