A man who refused to have his luggage inspected at an airport on
grounds it contained a sex toy was arrested when authorities found
$50,000 worth of marijuana inside his bags, police said Monday. Sgt.
Joe Reilly of the San Francisco Police said Kenneth Castor, 39, was
arrested Saturday after trying to carry 2 duffel bags with him on
board a flight to Honolulu. Guards at the security checkpoint spotted
something unusual in the X-ray scan of his bags and asked to search
them, but Castor refused. The guards called police after Castor
grabbed his bags and marched back through the metal detector. See
