Customs officials find corn flakes cereal coated with cocaine

That’s not frosting.

Customs authorities in Cincinnati intercepted a 44-pound shipment of corn flakes that were coated in cocaine on Feb. 13, according to US Customs and Border Protection.

A narcotics detection dog named Bico was sniffing through incoming freight — being sent to Hong Kong from Peru — when he alerted workers to the package, officials said.

The cereal contained white powder, and the flakes were also coated with a grey substance — both of which tested positive for cocaine.

Inspectors used “their training, intuition, and strategic skills,” to confiscate the package, Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie said.
