EXTREME TRAFFICKING: Heroin Found in Shipment of Flowers from Colombia

Last week U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Miami International Airport seized .25 Kg of Heroin found in a cargo of flowers. The seizure took place during a routine examination of cargo coming from Bogota, Colombia.

The drug was found during a routine examination of flower boxes when CBP officers spotted a cylinder shaped object hidden amongst the carnations. A CBP K-9 onsite also alerted to the box.

A closer examination of the cylinder by CBP officers revealed the presence of a brown powdering substance which later tested positive for Heroin.

There were no arrests in connection with this seizure as CBP did not find a link between the shipper or the importer and the drugs.
