Written by on February 22, 2021

On Friday, a press release was published by the US Border Patrol that detailed a major drug seizure that had occurred on February 13th. In the seizure, Border Patrol officers in Cincinnati intercepted a major shipment of cereal coming from South America which contained about 44 pounds of corn flakes that were coated in cocaine. It’s estimated that the cocaine in the shipment could have a street value of nearly $3 million.

The shipment, which was slated to be shipped to a private residence in Hong Kong, was alerted to Cincinnati officers by one of their narcotics dogs named Bico. When officers took a closer look inside the boxes of cereal, they found that the flakes were coated with a grayish substance that was later determined to be cocaine.
