Liquor dealers were found to be digging graves to hide their stuff away from police eyes in Saudi Arabia on the grounds cemeteries are the least suspected places.

Police said they discovered massive quantities of home-made liquor bottles concealed inside graves in a cemetery in the Southern Khamis Mushait town, adding that several Ethiopian dealers were arrested.

“This is the first crime of its kind in Saudi Arabia. iIt is one of the most heinous crimes as those criminals did not respect the sanctity of graves and had no fear of God,” a security source said, quoted by the Saudi daily 'Al Mawatin'.
