A British man born in Hong Kong to Taiwanese parents was recently arrested in Bangkok for trying to smuggle out six fetuses covered in gold.

Hok Kuen Chow told authorities that he intended to sell them in Taiwan. He said that he was able to buy the fetuses for about US$6,500 from a “dealer.”

Their going rate in Taiwan is at least six times what Chow had paid for them.

A Bangkok police officer said customers buy these gold-covered fetuses because they are used in a sort of black magic ritual believed to bring fortune and good luck.

Thai authorities now are trying to determine whether the fetuses were aborted or were taken from hospitals or other locations.

Chow is currently held up in jail for his actions.
