A man traveling to John F. Kennedy from the Dominican Republic was allegedly found with 1.5 kilos of cocaine stashed inside a diaper he wore under his pants, the Daily News reports.
Marlon Andujar Penzo, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, was arrested on Christmas Eve. Officials say he “exhibited nervous behavior” while going through Customs, and a subsequent pat down allegedly yielded the cocaine diaper.
The News reports that Penzo admitted to carrying the cocaine, and that he had been paid several thousand dollars to smuggle it into the States, where he was to hand it over to a contact. It is unclear what charges he faces.
