Authorities say a New Jersey man was arrested for trying to smuggle cocaine into JFK International Airport yesterday. 

The New York Daily News reports that 58-year-old Jose Rodriguez was taken into custody as he prepared to board a flight to the Dominican Republic. His carry-on bag was inspected by the TSA, who found the drugs conveniently stashed inside of a speaker. 

The Fort Lee, N.J. native faces a felony drug possession charge for what happens far too often.
