Chicken Stuffed With Cocaine Is Recipe For Arrest For Guatemalan Drug Smuggler

Posted: Updated:

CHANTILLY, Va. — Customs inspectors at Dulles International Airport say a man from Guatemala was detained after he tried to carry a cooked chicken stuffed with more than $4,000 worth of cocaine.

Customs and Border Protection spokesman Steve Sapp says agents decided the fully cooked chicken that 32-year-old Wagner Mauricio Linares Aragon brought with him on a flight Saturday from El Salvador warranted closer inspection.

Inside the chicken's cavity they say they found two small, clear bags that contained about 60 grams – about 2.3 ounces – of powder cocaine.

Linares Aragon is being held awaiting trial on felony drug charges in Loudoun County.
