CBP discovered a white powder after a strange dense handrail in each suitcase, which was later tested positive for cocaine.

Inside the rails, there were 2.5 pounds of cocaine discovered, which from street market, it’s valued at $45,000.

Robert E. Perez, Director of CBP’s New York field operations explained:

This latest seizure demonstrates the vigilance of our CBP officers, and their excellence in detecting those who would try to smuggle these illegal substances.

Nesbeth was taken into custody and now in the hands of Homeland Security. She could possibly be charged with narcotics smuggling.
