U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati reported finding 44 pounds of cocaine-coated cornflakes that had been shipped from South America to a Hong Kong private residence. Officials said a narcotics detection dog was checking incoming freight from Peru on Feb. 13 when he alerted officers to the package. Officers found that the cereal contained white powder and the flakes were coated with a grayish substance. Both tested positive for cocaine. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the 44 pounds of cocaine cereal seized has an estimated value of $2.82 million. Customs and Border Patrol agents regularly screen arriving international passengers and cargo for drugs, weapons and other restricted products.
