Police at the Guadalajara Airport, seized 120 grams of cocaine tucked into tortas being shipped to California.

The discovery was made in the loading/unloading area of the air terminal of Jalisco.  Where Regional Security Division personnel conduct routine inspections.

It was there that the cocaine package was found before leaving to Huntington Park, California.

It was unusual wrapping that attracted the attention of inspectors.  There were 15  pieces of cake, but four were perforated and inside were small packages of cocaine.
