Yesterday, customs agents and the DEA arrested men for smuggling $5 million worth of heroin in candy bars. more than 12 pounds of heroin had been divided into pellets that were placed in 100+ candy bars - and the candy bars were individually wrapped and packaged. So, each bar was worth more like 50 Grand.

The AP reports the candy-ful luggage was found during a routine baggage inspection of a passenger who had arrived at Newark Liberty International from Ecuador. A BMW was also seized in connection with the smuggling ring.
