Federal agents in the United States discovered more than 2 pounds of cocaine hidden inside fried fish at the Miami International Airport last weekend.
The fish was found in the luggage of a passenger who was traveling from Jamaica on Saturday morning.
While the passenger’s luggage was being x-rayed officers saw some anomalies in some of the cooked fish.
On further examination it was discovered that the bellies of some of the fish were sewn shut to conceal the cocaine.
According to CBP Miami Port Director Christopher Maston – “Drug smugglers are using increasingly innovative methods, and this interception is an excellent example of how our highly trained officers continue to use their experience and knowledge to detect and interdict the flow of illegal narcotics,”
