A man was arrested at JFK International Airport in New York City this week after trying to sneak cocaine into the U.S. inside of containers of curry and rice.
The New York Daily News reports that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers stopped Oral Anthony Caines at the airport on Wednesday after he returned from Georgetown, Guyana:
The officer found a plastic bag containing cocaine under a layer of food in each food container stashed in his luggage.
According to the Daily News, the 55-year-old told authorities that he was paid $5,000 to sneak the drugs into the country. He's currently being held without bail at Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center.
