Their eyes are gonna get the red ring of death, that's for sure.

Is that physically possible? Not that I know coke dimensions or anything. How big is an x-box?

similar scenario happened last month:

Here is a prime example of how NOT to act if you don't want the police to find the brick of cocaine hidden in your Xbox 360

Subby, I don't need no stinking cocaine to stay up all night playing Skyrim. Mountain Dew works just fine.

I used to snort coke, until I took an arrow to the nose.

24 pounds? I don't know how much coke weighs, but that's quite a bit of anything to stuff in an X360.

$5 million just to transport? Damn, how much is 24lbs of nose candy worth?

In this case, I believe it weighed 24 pounds.

24 lbs inside a box is simply not possible. Cop math+ reporter math= nonsensical answer.

If it were a "shipment" of xboxes (which I could believe, smugglers are creative), I'd have no problem with it.

I doubt highly you could fit 24 lbs of lead into an xbox.

The figures are probably cop-math, but 24 pounds of PURE coke after all the stepping on it will get by the time it hits the streets, will bring in a nice chunk of change.

"I don't know how much coke weighs per volume of an Xbox360" was the implied meaning of my post. The subtext being, "I find it unlikely anyone can fit 24 pounds of the Devil's Dandruff into an Xbox." Sorry for the confusion.

Even with Jamicain cop math that's not real. That would be about $500/gram for transportation. Me thinks we have a stupid mule - there's a shocker.

/$5,000,000 / (22 lbs * 454 grams/lb)

grinding_journalist: 24 lbs inside a box is simply not possible.


Slow morning, so I checked the math.

The Xbоx 360 weighs 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg) and is: 309 mm wide x 83 mm high x 258 mm deep (12.15 in wide x 3.27 in high x 10.15 in deep).

So let's call it a true shell, with absolutely nothing inside it, for purposes of argument, and call the volume the dimensions.

6616926 mm^2 = approx 662 cm^2

Lead has a density of 11.34 grammes per cubic centimeter


Filling it with lead would get us 7.5 kilos = 16 lbs

Yep. Not possible.

/blow is not 50% more dense than lead

That's just what they estimated at the scene, though. 24 pounds by heft. When the single baggie of cocaine was delivered to the station, it weighed five pounds.

You're off by a factor of ten. To keep it simple, let's convert each dimension to cm first:
30.9cm x 8.3cm x 25.8cm = 6617 cm^3. Density = 11.34 g/cm^3. Total mass = 75.0 kg, or 165 lbs.

Having held lead bricks in my hand, I can assure you that you would have a LOT of trouble lifting an xbox full of lead. It would definitely NOT weigh 16 lbs!

It's pure, unadulterated coke. It will be stepped on, several times over, before it gets to someone's nose.
 
2012-06-13 10:42:47 AM  
There is no way in hell you're getting more than 1-2 KG in an xbox 360.

Oh man, I could post forever on this one...

"You know what's wrong with Skyrim dese days? Everyone's OBSESSED with coke!"

"Eeeeverything's for sale, my friend, everything! I'd even buy one of your kilos of blow if your're selling! HaHa! Heh..heh... just a little joke there...."

"If you've got the aptitude, you should check out the crack house in Winterhold."

"So, you're interested in my potions, coke, and ingredients?"

"Hands to yourself, coke-thief!"

Uh...did you read the rest of that post? It shows that the XBox could hold more than what you calculated, which makes it more likely that the cocaine could fit there.

It still seems like 24 lbs wouldn't fit though. If the density of cocaine is 1.2g/cm^3 (as a quick search suggests, and seems reasonable for an organic compound) then it is still under 20 lbs that could fit in there.
