Officials: Woman had cocaine in custard packages

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Authorities say a woman arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport was carrying something extra in the packets of custard and milk powder in her luggage cocaine.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says a K-9 unit dog alerted its handler to a suspicious suitcase at the New York airport on Nov. 21. The suitcase's owner was a woman arriving from Georgetown, Guyana.

A baggage check turned up three packages of milk powder and three packages of custard powder. The substance inside was examined and tested positive for cocaine.

The woman is a U.S. citizen. She's facing federal narcotics smuggling charges.
