Cocaine Found in Passenger's Fried Fish On Flight From Jamaica

Customs officials display fried fish used to smuggle cocaine into the U.S. at Miami International Airport. Federal agents sniffed out more than fried fish on a flight from Jamaica to Miami last weekend.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Keith Smith said officers seized more than 2 pounds of cocaine sealed inside the fried fish at Miami International Airport.

The fish was being carried in the luggage of a passenger arriving from Jamaica on Saturday morning.

During an X-ray examination of the passenger’s luggage, officers noticed some anomalies in some of the cooked fish, Smith said. Upon further examination, officers discovered that the bellies of some of the fish were sewn together, and certain fish felt thicker than the rest, Smith said.

"Drug smugglers are using increasingly innovative methods, and this interception is an excellent example of how our highly trained officers continue to use their experience and knowledge to detect and interdict the flow of illegal narcotics," CBP Miami Port Director Christopher Maston said.

Smith said the 38-year-old passenger was arrested. Her name was not released.
