Found in my "new" Truck

Found these four vinyl propaganda banners in a Tithonus ST I imported earlier this year. Pretty neat, especially the Wanted poster.

Has anyone else found interesting surprises hidden in their vehicles when they were delivered?

Just cigarette butts and chewing gum wrappers. Nothing interesting whatsoever. Now you on the other hand hit the jackpot of cool shit left in an ExMod!

Would've been cooler if it were a stash of gold, diamonds, money or weapons but yeah, I was pretty pumped.

I've found web gear, spent 5.56 casing, money, random documents, field dressings, and 24 hr ration pack rappers. Nothing as cool your find

Mine had a laminated 'reminder' that this is not your truck, and to remove trash daily... But, it was clean ;-)

googling them at least 5 have been taken out by the drone program... so my guess they left it in the truck as it needed updating. Mostly 2008/09

Biatullah Mahsoud and Dost Mohammed look like twins, and may be related to this guy.

Took me a second but I did LOL. Nice one.

Also - $200,000 is a decent bounty. Wonder how "we" pay the rewards out. Do they actually get paid? One lump sum? Do we track what is done with the money so that it doesn't go right back into the hands of the bad guys? Ah, just things that I think about when I can't sleep.

That's why it says "may" - I may win $100 million dollars in the next lottery. Fingers crossed!

That wasn't sheep shit. CBP just expressing its own opinion...
