Officials in the American city of Cincinnati recently uncovered a massive shipment of cocaine.
During a routine inspection of what officials believed to be Corn Flakes being imported from Peru to the United States, one of the dogs trained to sniff out drugs alerted them.
When officials opened the cereal boxes for closer inspections they found that the sugary coating on the Corn Flakes was anything but sugar. It turned out to be almost 20 kilograms of cocaine.
Bico, the drug dog, has been hailed as a hero for discovering the cocaine that has an estimated street value of $3 million.
While it might be against the law, we thought it was a pretty creative way to get cocaine across the border. It seems as if drug lords are becoming more creative over the years. Police in Italy last year discovered cocaine stuffed inside individually hollowed-out coffee beans, after opening a parcel addressed to a fictional Mafia boss from a Hollywood movie, reports CNN.
Well, we guess someone won’t be getting it all this morning.
