US Customs intercept 20kg of cocaine hidden on corn flakes
US Customs intercepted 20kg of cocaine this week at Cincinnati airport, Ohio. Smugglers attempted to disguise the drug by coating corn flakes with it, making bootleg Frosties that would be certain to put a spring in your step.
Border Protection officers reported finding 44lbs/20kg of cocaine-dusted cornflakes on an incoming flight from Peru. It has been reported that the mountain of naughty cereal was bound for Hong Kong.
The drugs were found by a narcotics detection dog named Bico (not pictured.)
After drug cops found the cereal to be coated in a "greyish" substance, tests revealed it was cocaine.
The total worth of the drugs is estimated to be north of €2 million.
Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie said: "The men and women at the Port of Cincinnati are committed to stopping the flow of dangerous drugs, and they continue to use their training, intuition, and strategic skills to prevent these kinds of illegitimate shipments from reaching the public."
