Apparently the guy carried it off with two boxes of fruit juice filled with dirt.

"Eran dos latas de Jumex, las llené de tierra y les puse una lucecitas", dijo, antes de ser retirado por los agentes federales que lo custodiaban.

Actually, I believe it was two cans. Brings up the question of security at the Cancun airport.He must have had to have taken them through the screening area. Dirt could have been explosives.
