MIAMI - US Customs and Border Protection officers at Miami International Airport say a smuggler tried to use fried fish to conceal more than two pounds of cocaine.
Authorities say a 38-year-old woman arriving from Jamaica Saturday morning was carrying fried fish with her luggage.
During an X-ray examination, officers say they noticed anomalies in some of the cooked fish. Officers said the bellies of some of the fish were sewn together and certain fish felt thicker than the rest.
Authorities found 2.3 pounds of cocaine hidden inside the fish, which they seized. The woman has been arrested. Her name has not been released.
