CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - A man from Guatemala is under arrest after customs inspectors at Dulles International Airport discovered he was carrying a cooked chicken stuffed with more than $4,000 worth of cocaine.
Agents decided the fully cooked chicken that 32-year-old Wagner Mauricio Linares Aragon brought with him on a flight Saturday from El Salvador warranted closer inspection.
Inside the chicken's cavity they found two small, clear bags that contained about 60 grams - about 2.3 ounces - of powder cocaine.
Linares Aragon is currently being held awaiting trial on felony drug charges in Loudoun County.
