Cocaine Seized

Customs officials seize four pounds and two ounces of cocaine, concealed inside chocolate bars and drink boxes.

Chocolate bars, filled with 4 pounds of cocaine were seized at the Dulles International Airport. According to WTOP.com, six chocolate bars and six small drink boxes were seized by Customs and Border Protection officers containing 4 pounds and 2 ounces of cocaine.

Six of 8 chocolate bars, carried by a Guatemalan woman, were filled with cocaine, while the drink boxes had plastic bags filled with cocaine. Customs did not charge the woman, who was a courier. Instead, they removed her from the country and banned her from the US for 5 years.
