Delta worker nabbed for trying to smuggle cocaine inside fudge

A 64 year-old Brooklyn man has been released on $100,000 bail after allegedly attempting to smuggle a kilo of cocaine inside a pack of chocolate fudge.

Noel Llewellyn, who works for Delta Airlines, landed at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport from Trinidad following a JetBlue flight.

As he made his way through US Customs, agents noticed something unusual: four packs of Tortuga chocolate rum fudge in his suitcase.

Agents opened the package of fudge candy. They found one kilo of a white powdered substance that tested positive for cocaine and arrested Llewellyn.

The suspect told agents his sister-in-law was the one who packed the boxes of chocolate rum fudge.
