A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent received a tip that a large suspicious box had been sent to a postal center in Detroit.  Agents were watching the center when a man came to pick up the package August 5.

The package was addressed to a Windor, Ontario resident Kai Xu, who was arrested when he later crossed the border back into Canada.

Strapped to Xu's body and in between his legs were 50 turtles. Border agents ceased the turtles and the man. He was charged Wednesday with smuggling, illegal trading and exporting.
