U.S. Customer and Border Protection offers busted a Jamaican man at JFK airport with about $19,000 of cocaine stashed in his underwear.
Approximately one pound of cocaine was discovered under the man’s crotch by officers at the airport, who searched Romario Lewis after he arrived from Jamaica.
CBP’s Robert Perez told reporters, “This seizure is another example of our CBP officers being ever vigilant in protecting the United States from the distribution of illicit drugs.”
The man was arrested on federal narcotics smuggling charges. Authorities took a photo – which was released to the press – of Lewis with the drugs still protruding from underneath his manhood.
From the photo, it appears that the bag of cocaine was held in place between two pairs of boxer briefs. The photo shows one pair pulled down with the cocaine peeking out.
