Man Busted At Airport With Cocaine-Stuffed Chicken

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.

    Where he comes from, must be the usual to carry your cooked dinner on a plane flight, especially a whole entree. It astounds me every time I hear another 'incredibly dumb criminal' story.
