Customs and Border Protection at the Washington Dulles International Airport call it “one of the oddest we’ve seen” referring to coked up clams found in a passengers luggage.
When El Salvadoran, David Pocasangre (which translates in English to ‘no blood’) Vaquiz arrived on a flight from Panama border officials found 15 clams were stuffed with cocaine. The coked up clams have a street value of $10,000.
Officials found 80 clams in black plastic bags of which 15 had the cocaine in them. The coked up clams were closed and had apparently been resealed with glue once the coke was stuffed in them.
Pocasangre Vaquiz will be detained in the U.S. until his preliminary hearing on October 5th.
