Officials: White pellets in cookies weren't chips

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Officials at Newark Liberty International Airport have confiscated a batch of cookies with a street value of more than $50,000.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says that's because the cookies had 118 pellets of cocaine baked into them.

A spokesman for the agency said Thursday that customs officers made the discovery June 5 during an examination of luggage from passengers arriving at the New Jersey airport on a flight from Guatemala City.

Man Attempts To Smuggle Cocaine Cookies Through Airport

Customs officials say Guatemalan citizen Mauricio Isidro Rivera Hernandez was arrested after officers allegedly discovered the cookies in his three checked bags.

He was handed over to the police department of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and faces state charges of narcotics smuggling.

It is not immediately known if he has retained an attorney.

Sorry about those corners in NYC. It would help if the good legal citizens were allowed the "right to possess" an equalizer. Must be terrible for the people that live in that neighborhood, and the trash that coke brings to those vicinities.

"the right's"? Why bring politics into this situation? It's called common sense, values, and issues with trash from both sides of the fence. Coke=trash and people that depend on it to escape reality are scum that bring problems not only to themselves but extreme pain and worry to the friends and family that love them. And by the way, both parties use and abuse the crap!

There are more drugs in the prison system than the streets. Don't you read statistics.

"Statistics". LOL! That's cute, but how gullible can you get? Yep, there are drugs in prisons, but "reading statistics" is meaningless. You can get numbers to indicate anything you want them to say depending on what "filters" you put on them. Polls showed that 82% of Americans were fine with the name of the Washington Redskins, too, but is that going to prevail? Probably not, because there are morons in power right now that continue to break our laws, ignore majority opinion, and violate the intent of the Constitution in their march toward dictatorship. So, it doesn't matter whether a reader doesn't know that drugs are available in prison, what is important is that he goes there. And it is too bad that he will still live better than many people law-abiding people who struggle to survive every day.
