‘Brown substance’in traveler’s Wholesale Bikini turns out to be heroin
A fidgety arriving lingerie china passenger caught the attention of Customs agents at JFK, and their hunch was right — he had two pounds of heroin in his underwear.
Charles was “walking awkwardly” and “avoided eye contact” with the officers, causing them to grow more suspicious, according to a complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal court.
As his luggage was being inspected, they noticed that Charles, 42, was “wearing loose fitting clothing, giving him a bulky appearance.”
CPB Officers then pulled him out of line and took him to a private search room where he was patted down and found with two clear packages stuffed in his underwear containing a “brown paste-like substance.”
