‘Green’ cocaine confiscated by CBP officers at Philadelphia International Airport.
Officers confiscated more than 12 pounds of ‘green cocaine’. The package initially arrived from Colombia. CBP officers examined the contents of the package and discovered nine plastic jars that contained a green powdery substance and nine plastic jars that contained a brown tar-like substance. Samples were sent to labs in Savannah, Georgia and Newark, New Jersey for analysis.
The labs confirmed the green substance tested positive for cocaine, and the brown substance tested positive for nicotine.
