OHIO - Drug smugglers attempted to conceal over four pounds of drugs inside a shipment of diapers heading overseas to Australia from Texas, according to Customs and Border Protection.
Authorities say that on November 11, a narcotics detector dog was helping inspect freight in Cincinnati when it alerted its handlers to a shipment in diapers.
The shipment contained bags of plastic-wrapped baby diapers and appeared to be firm and unusually heavy.
When officers tested the material inside the diapers, they identified it as over four pounds of methamphetamine, a Schedule II Narcotic.
"Our officers are committed to keeping our country and communities safe from illegal and dangerous drugs," said LaFonda Sutton-Burke, Director, Field Operations-Chicago. "This seizure is one example of the quality enforcement work they do on a daily basis."
