147 Pounds Of Cocaine Found In Shipping Container At Port

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Customs officials found 147 pounds of cocaine in a shipping container at the Port of Baltimore.

The cocaine, which was discovered on Aug. 4, was in a shipping container from Brazil.

It’s the largest cocaine seizure U.S. Customs and Border Protection has seen in Baltimore since April 2007, when CBP officers found 310 pounds of cocaine inside 3 gym bags inside a refrigerated shipping container from Ecuador.

Officers found the cocaine last week when they noticed abnormalities in a shipment of lumber when using non-intrusive imaging technologies. The white powdery substance was packed in 57 bricks concealed in two gym bags. It tested posted as cocaine.

And in a shipping container at the other end of the dock, a ton of coke goes undiscovered.
