Inspectors Find Cocaine-Coated Corn Flakes

Some breakfast cereals have a little too much frosting on their pieces, but this is a little more extreme.


Customs inspectors in Ohio have a shipment of corn flakes with a very interesting topping: cocaine.  Officials said a narcotics detection dog named Bico was checking out incoming freight when he alerted officers to the package.


Customs officials reportedly found 44 pounds of cocaine-coated corn flakes being shipped from South America to Hong Kong.


Officials say that smugglers will try any means to smuggle narcotics, even breakfast cereal.
