Cocaine-filled cookie plan crumbles at Newark International Airport
C is for Cocaine. (via Customs and Border Protection)
Girl scouts, listen up. You can't store your drugs in cookies anymore. They're on to it.
A Guatemalan man checked three bags of cookies and flew them to Newark International Airport. Customs did a routine inspection when they decided that checking three bags of cookies is totally weird. According to CBS, officials investigated and found 118 oval-shaped pellets of cocaine hidden inside, weighing a little more than 3 pounds. That's worth about $52,000 on the street.
The perp, Mauricio Isidro Rivera Hernandez, has been turned over to Port Authority and is facing drug charges.
It could have been the perfect crime, too. No one expects coke heads to get the munchies.
