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.

United States (US) 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 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 grayish substance. Both tested positive for cocaine.
