Customs inspectors find cocaine-coated corn flakes in Ohio


CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — Customs authorities in Ohio say they intercepted a shipment of cereal earlier this month with a special frosting — cocaine.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati reported finding 44 pounds of cocaine-coated corn flakes that had been shipped from South America to a Hong Kong home.

Officials said a narcotics detection dog named “Bico” was checking out incoming freight from Peru when he alerted officers to the package. Officers found that the cereal contained white powder and the flakes were coated with a grayish substance, and both tested positive for cocaine.
