Cocaine found hidden in bed posts at Dulles
Bed posts being transported through Dulles Airport from El Salvador were being used for more than a good night’s sleep.
When authorities examined the bedposts, they found more than 200 grams of cocaine stored inside, authorities said.
The bed posts were part of a shipment of goods carried by a Taca Airlines flight that arrived to Dulles on Thursday night.
Authorities discovered an anomaly during an X-ray of the bed posts. Officials dug into the bed posts and discovered 245 grams of cocaine valued at about $17,000.
