No, today’s article isn’t a twist on a classic Christmas pudding, instead it’s about how a 21 year old tried to smuggle 3 kilos of heroin through Newark Liberty International— by coating it in chocolate.
At first, he almost had Customs convinced that the heroin was actually part of a chocolate layer cake, but one agent with a bit of a sweet tooth soon realized there wasn’t any cake under that chocolate, only horse.
In essence, yes, we guess you could say, “The cake was a lie.”
After pleading guilty to Possession with Intent to Distribute, this newbie baker will be sentenced this coming January and faces life in prison.
What say you, PDers? A life term seems a high price to pay for 3 kilos of heroin with chocolate coating, right?
