Cocaine seized inside fried fish


(CNN) -- It appears drug smugglers are becoming more brazen..or should we say creative?

Fried fish full of cocaine was discovered inside luggage at Miami International Airport Saturday morning.

U.S. customs officers seized more than two pounds of the drug.

Authorities say it was being carried in the luggage of a female passenger arriving from Jamaica.

During an x-ray examination, officers at the airport noticed that some of the fish looked odd.

That's when they found that the bellies of some of the fish were sewn together.

The woman has been arrested.
