$80K worth of cocaine found in figurines at Atlanta airport
Agents said three pounds of cocaine were found in decorative figurines at Atlanta's airport, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.
The figurines were found Tuesday night in the bags of a 24-year-old traveler who arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport from Toncontin, Honduras, a news release said.
An agricultural specialist found anomalies in the figurines after taking an x-ray image. An CBP officer opened up the figurines and found a white-powdery substance that later tested positive as cocaine.
The 2.84 pounds of cocaine found has a street value of about $80,000, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said.
