Woman Arrested at JFK International Airport for Smuggling Illegal Substances Inside of Toblerone Bars

A woman was arrested at JFK International Airport for attempting to smuggle seven pounds  of cocaine inside of Toblerone bars and boxes. According to the New York Post, 22-year-old Ebony Gray strolled onto a Caribbean Airlines jet in Trinidad with a "bulging" bag carrying the contraband. When she touched down in New York, customs agents inspected her bag and noticed that the Toblerone she was carrying wasn't, in fact, Toblerone.

Inside of those little prisms, they found cocaine instead of chocolate, which is sacrilege to most. The Post says that some boxes contained  "foil-wrapped solid sticks of packed cocaine," while others carried  "what looked like coke stuffed into other chocolate bars." 

Gray was charged with drug smuggling and released after posting $50,000 bond.
