Officers at the Port of Cincinnati, Ohio, intercepted the package from Peru on February 13, 2021. It contained 20 kilograms of cocaine-covered cornflakes, according to a press release.
The discovery was made with the help of a dog specially trained to discover drugs in luggage, named Bico. The package was to move on to a private residence in Hong Kong.
After carefully inspecting the grain, the officers tested the white powder found on their surface, and found that it was not sugar, as it should have been, but cocaine.
“Cincinnati Harbor employees are committed to stopping the flow of dangerous drugs and continue to use their training, intuition and strategic skills to prevent these types of illegitimate transportation from reaching the public,” said Cincinnati Harbor Director Richard Spuse Gillespie .
Over time, drug traffickers have used increasingly creative methods to try to transport cocaine.
For example, in July, Italian police discovered cocaine in individually hollowed out coffee beans after opening a package addressed to a fictitious mafia boss, writes CNN.
