Is the new motto for cocaine smugglers, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again”?
Only a week after a man traveling from the Dominican Republic was busted by custom agents at JFK Airport trying to smuggle 10 pounds of cocaine wrapped to his legs, Gothamist reporting that another man has been detained by the Department of Homeland Security for attempting the very same cocaine smuggling method. The only difference being that this man was carrying “only” 5 pounds of the illegal narcotic.
Customs agents say that they became suspicious of the alleged drug mule, Mayobanex Ruiz Gomez of the Dominican Republic, when he showed signs of being uneasy as he stepped off his flight. The man was coming from once again, the Dominican Republic and was busted at, once again, JFK Airport.
In a press release officials said “It was like ‘déjà vu all over again’ for U. S. Customs and Border Protection officers.”
Aside from making flights from the Dominican Republic hotboxes for customs agents, these busts are going to leave a few blocks dry for at least the rest of the week.
But remember, there’s still one more “try” left in the apparent cocaine mantra so y’all skiers might wanna start praying to Jesús Malverde that your connect can come through on the third try.
Peep the photo from the most recent bust below and last week’s on the flip.
