CHICAGO (WGN) — A man on a Chicago-bound Amtrak train was busted for transporting cocaine.

Federal agents say Daniel Ramirez fashioned a very unconvincing leg cast, complete with fake blood, and stuffed five packages of coke inside the cast.

It didn’t fool anyone; Ramirez was stopped and questioned in New Mexico, and the cast started crumbling almost immediately.

Police say the cocaine is worth about $25,000.
