The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency says officers nabbed a Guyanese national with cocaine his sneakers at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

According to CBP, on April 6, the arriving passenger – Thenga Adams “tried to sneak past” officers “but was stopped in his tracks.”

“During the course of the inspection, CBP officers discovered running shoes in his luggage that contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine,” CBP said in a statement on Thursday.

“Mr. Adams was arrested for the importation of a controlled substance and was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations,” it added.

The total weight of cocaine seized was about 2 lbs. The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) estimates the street value to be US$30,000.

Adams now faces US federal narcotics smuggling charges and will be prosecuted by the US Attorney’s Office in the US Eastern District Court of New York.

@anthoni, "rebels kidnapped his family"? where do you see that? Besides does one have to have cocaine in their system to smuggle drugs?

The other news is that the rebels kidnapped his family n making him do that; note: who would ever suspect national officials to do stuff like that on g.p. Does he have cocaine in his system?
