US customs agents caught two Americans with more than 4 pounds of cocaine.

Agents at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport were inspecting their bags, when they found several children's coats that were unusually heavy.

Police found a white powdery substance sewn into each coat's lining, which they later determined to be cocaine.

The two passengers, both in their early 20s, were traveling together from Lima, Peru.
