Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Don't sew yourself into the upholstery. Don't hide half a ton of marijuana in bogus concrete furniture. Don't miss KTLA's supremely disturbing gallery of "Bizarre Border Busts" with a collection of 39 photos courtesy of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
