Chicken stuffed with cocaine is recipe for arrest

CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - December 6, 2009

Customs and Border Protection spokesman Steve Sapp says agents decided the fully cooked chicken that 32-year-old Wagner Mauricio Linares Aragon brought with him on a flight Saturday from El Salvador warranted closer inspection.

Inside the chicken's cavity they say they found two small, clear bags that contained about 60 grams - about 2.3 ounces - of powder cocaine.

Linares Aragon is being held awaiting trial on felony drug charges in Loudoun County.
