Dog detects 20kgs of cocaine laced Corn Flakes in USA
US Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati reported finding 44 pounds (20 kilograms) of cocaine-coated cornflakes 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 on February 13 when he alerted officers to the package. Officers found that the cereal contained white powder and the flakes were coated with a greyish substance. Both tested positive for cocaine.
But to make this story even better, the haul was found thanks to a narcotics dogs named, wait for it, Bico. I can only assume that Bico has been awarded “best boy” for his coke-sniffing efforts.
