Man disguises beer cans as Pepsi

A man has disguised 48,000 beer cans as Pepsi.

The unnamed individual attempted to smuggle the cans into Saudi Arabia, where alcohol is banned, but his plan was unearthed by border control officers.

Al Batha border General Manager Abdulrahman al-Mahna said: "A truck carrying what first seemed to be normal cans of the soft drink Pepsi was stopped.

"After the standard process of searching the products, it became clear that the alcoholic beers were covered with Pepsi's sticker logos."

The suspect has been arrested but according to alarabiya.net, it remains unclear what his punishment will be.
