Why Is Underwear Such a Go-To Hiding Spot for People Sneaking Things on Airplanes?


First the underwear bomber, now a 64-year-old Queens woman was caught at JFK airport with $170,000 in a pair of underwear. She hid the money to avoid paying taxes on the sale of her late husband’s property in Sudan. Claire Abdeldaim wasn’t caught until after she removed the undergarment during a layover in Amsterdam and stashed it in her purse, but surely there has to be a better way than sewing 1,699 $100 bills into your bloomers?
