U.S. Customs & Border Patrol Officers at the Philadelphia International Airport, seized 18 pounds of cocaine found in an airplane’s cargo hold. 6 ABC ACTION NEWS said the discovery was made on a flight coming from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
CBP Officers reportedly met the flight at the gate upon landing, where a “detector dog” alerted officers to the find. The cocaine was found hidden inside of three access panels. Officers found three bags. Two of the bags had 4-bricks of cocaine apiece inside. The third bag was empty. CBP officers said the haul was worth an estimated $580,000 on the street.
Officers found cocaine, but not a suspect. No arrests have been made and no one has come forward to claim their cocaine at this time.
