 The  20 kg cargo with the special kind of icing was sent on its way in South America and was destined for Hong Kong, the customs and border protection authorities said. A drug-tracking dog named Bico showed the right nose.

 The y immediately discovered that the cereal flakes contained a white powder and the corn flakes were coated with a grayish substance. Both were cocaine. According to various US media, the customs authorities seized cocaine worth over 2.5 million Swiss francs.

Port of Cincinnati director Richard Gillespie said smugglers would try to hide narcotics in all sorts of things. However, thanks to their “training, intuition and strategic skills”, his inspectors are on their toes.
