A man arriving from the Dominican Republic got busted with $90,000 worth of heroin hidden in his luggage at JFK airport in NYC. Specifically, the three pounds worth of heron was founded in a few pairs of Nike Air Force 1s. 

Says a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release:

On February 24, CBP officers stopped Mr. Perez Beltran, a United States citizen, who arrived on a flight from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  During the course of the inspection, CBP officers discovered a pair of sneakers in his luggage that appeared heavier than normal. CBP officers probed the sneakers and found a tan powdery substance that tested positive for heroin.  Two additional pairs of drug-filled sneakers were discovered in his luggage as well.

Approximately 3 lbs. of heroin was seized, with an estimated street value of $90,000.

Beltran was arrested and turned over to Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). He is looking at federal drug smuggling charges.

Also, those kicks are beater status.
