Hungry? Why wait? Grab a Snickers bar, because it just might be filled with meth. 34-year-old Rogelio Mauricio Harris of Long Beach, CA, was arrested by the feds at LAX on Friday while trying to hop a plane to Japan with four pounds of meth worth $250,000 hidden in Snickers bars. During a routine inspection of his luggage, Border Protection agents noticed strange looking candy. That was the end of one vacation for Harris, and the beginning of a less pleasant one.
Authorities found 45 individually wrapped candy bars that contained a white substance that they soon learned was meth. The bars were even coated with chocolate to give them that official candy look. Harris was charged with possession of meth with the intent to distribute, and could face anywhere from 10 years to life in prison.
