Guam - You've heard that saying "Life's like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get"? So imagine the surprise when a tourist opened his box of chocolates with a nail inside.
Customs officials confirm the tourist when he returned to Japan found the object. The chocolates were bought on Guam and had the Guam brand on it. How did it pass through Customs? Spokesperson Lieutenant Ferdinand Soriano said, "We are a relatively small unit regarding border protection and border entry, take the number of personnel that we have versus the number of passengers that come in on a daily basis, versus the number of containers that come in at the port versus the number of palletized cargo, there is only so much that we can do to inspect every passenger, every piece of cargo that comes through."
Public Health meanwhile, conducted an investigation into the complaint and said it was an isolated incident.
