US Customs Agents Seize
Nearly 20 kg of Cocaine

U.S. customs officials in Miami have seized nearly 20 kilograms of liquid cocaine hidden in a shipment of live exotic fish from Colombia.

Officials say the shipping method is a revival of an old smuggling trend that officers have not seen in several years.

A drug-sniffing dog named "Rocky" tipped agents off when he smelled cocaine in a shipment of triple-lined plastic bags containing the fish. The inner bags were filled with fish and water, but the middle linings held the yellowish liquid cocaine.

The officers say the drugs were worth at least $300,000.
