(CNN)US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) seized a shipment of cereal from South America that was covered in cocaine instead of sugar.

CBP officers in Cincinnati, Ohio, intercepted the package on February 13 containing about 44 pounds of cocaine-coated corn flakes, according to a news release.

While working on incoming freight from Peru, a CPD narcotic detector dog named Bico flagged the cereal shipment going to a private residence in Hong Kong. Upon further inspection, officers found and tested white powder on the cereal that was positive for cocaine.
“The men and women at the Port of Cincinnati are committed to stopping the flow of dangerous drugs, and they continue to use their training, intuition, and strategic skills to prevent these kinds of illegitimate shipments from reaching the public,” Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie said.

    Wow, so a shipment from Peru destined for Hong Kong goes through a “Port” in Cincinnati ? Supply Chain logistics are fascinating.

    Yeah, those direct flights to and from Cincinnati are awesome.
    Bet there is going to a run on Corn Flakes now.

    Greater Cincinnati Airport is a CBP Port of Entry (air freight).

    And Biden wants to get rid of this agency?

    Leftists are idiots.

    I’d be ok with a decision to not inspect cargo that is not destined for a US point. For example, if someone from Peru wants to ship crack laced peanut butter sandwiches to a buyer in Hong Kong, why are we inspecting it? Fucking let Hong Kong inspect it.
