Drugs get smuggled in and out of this country just as often as teeny boppers buy Jonas Brothers records. So why did Wagner Mauricio Linares Aragon, 32 of Guatemala, think it was a good idea to smuggle close to $4,3000 worth of cocaine inside of a carry-out chicken at Dulles International Airport? My best guess is that it hasn’t been done before (as far as federal/local authorities know).
Aragon was found carrying 2.3 ounces of cocaine inside his carry-on chicken during a second inspection by Customs and Border Protection early Sunday morning according to officials.
“Officers have seen many unique narcotics concealment methods, and they all present the same challenges to discover them,” Christopher Hess, director of the agency’s Port of Washington, told the Washington Times.
Aragon and his smuggled stash was turned into the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. So a word to the wise — don’t smuggle your illegal narcotics inside a cooked chicken. You WILL get caught.
