Not as innovative as some trafficking trickery, that said, but for the drug seeking K9 it may have passed through……..article below

U.S. Customs officers found 35 pounds of cocaine in an unusual form and place Monday.

A traveler from Colombia had liquid cocaine in 24 shampoo bottles in his bag. The cocaine is valued at over $400,000.

Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol found the 26-year-old would-be smuggler as he retrieved his checked baggage from the luggage carousel at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.


When the officers discovered the full-sized shampoo bottles, a K9 alerted them in a manner to indicate the presence of narcotics. Officers then tested the liquid inside the bottle and it was revealed to be cocaine.

The would-be smuggler was returned to Colombia and the narcotics were seized and turned over to the Houston Police Department for further investigation.

  2. Is it me or it obvious that columbians are taking upon themselves to traffic the coke instead of dealing with Mexico and their cartels? I read more over seas seizures out at sea and airports. Seems like columbians are tired of dealing with Mexican cartels

    2. No , Mexicans are now facilitating movement and loads. Oh btw, those large confiscations the last few months by coastguard were Jaliscos. They have a rat in the ranks...100

    3. Something like that it seems indeed. It also indicates that organisations in both Mexico and Colombia are becoming more hermetic.

  4. Tired or not, it's all about geography. If the Colombians would have used their Mexican cartel couriers, they would have all their product in US. Minus, the Mexican cartels cut.

  5. Not everyone sell tons of coke this is small time guys that can make really good money if they get it to we’re they have to imagine the difference of the price Colombia kilo say$5,000 and United States depending on what area just a example $20-30k that’s a good profit per kilo that’s why you see smaller amount from some Colombians when they sell to Mexicans they don’t have to worry about losing their coke trying to get it to the market thats ther problem colombianos take less risk and are not bringing the heat of the government has much by letting Mexicans cartels cross and sell the coke they have the heat of the government know that they do more moves

  9. The shipment arrived, he was set free in his homeland, the merca is in the evidence room collecting dust or evaporating. Homie is out a few g's maybe a calentada depending if he straight bought it and the cycle continues cause the pari never ends and the liquor keeps flowing. There's pretty much just one hugh fiesta going on this side of dee Atlantic and Pacific like it's always been. If you came to party you came to the right region. If you get caught in between due to negligence, jealousy, greed,plain stupidity, no parents, parents, poor, rich, just remember nobody but nobody still don't give two shits or a quarter for you to call home. The new motto is "be aware of the air". Kangz.
