Ever on the lookout for drugs, guns and money, customs agents at a South Texas international bridge crossing busted 191 units of an unusual sort of contraband — hermit crabs. A 49-year-old Mexican citizen from McKinney, Texas, was crossing back into the United States at the Hidalgo Port of Entry when U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found a box full of live hermit crabs inside his vehicle and another bag of the crabs in the trunk, according to an agency statement Tuesday. The 191 crabs taken in the Nov. 30 bust were given to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the man was issued a $1,910 fine for not declaring the crabs.

Possibly on their way to Stonebriar Mall?
