A Jamaican woman has been caught attempting to smuggle over five million dollars worth of cocaine into New York via her luggage at the JFK international airport.
According to the Daily Mail, Chevelle Rusheen Nesbeth hid 2.5 pounds of the drug in the metal poles of multiple suitcases before flying from Jamaica’s Montego Bay to New York’s Kennedy Airport, according to a charge sheet.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, Nesbeth was detained after a spot-check of luggage at arrivals on Tuesday.
Inspectors felt that each of her cases had one unusually dense handle.
Nesbeth was escorted to a private search room where officers discovered a white powdery substance in the hand rails which tested positive for cocaine.
The cocaine wass valued at US $45,000 which translates to over JMD $5 million.
