MIAMI (AP) -- Federal investigators say they've found about 20-thousand dollars worth of cocaine disquised as snack-sized bags of peanuts on an Avianca flight from Colombia to Miami.
Cocaine found in snack bags on flight to Miami
Authorities say none of the passengers on the plane ate any of the 51 bags of peanuts that held a little over a kilo of the drug. Avianca flight Two landed at Miami International Airport yesterday afternoon.
A drug-sniffing dog doing a routine search of the plane alerted agents to the presence of drugs in the galley. Agents noticed the peanut bags "didn't feel right," so they opened them up and found the drugs.
There have been no arrests so far.
