A man traveling from the Dominican Republic got bagged for hiding heroin in his Nike Air Force 1s.
According to a Fox 29 report, Perez Beltran was stopped at JFK Airport by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers last Wednesday. The officers searched through his bag when they came across his beat-up Nikes and noticed the shoes feeling unusually heavy, only to find heroin in the sneakers.
Three pounds of heroin were found in the Beltran’s shoes, accumulating a street value of $90,000. The officers turned over Beltran to Homeland Security, where he’ll be facing drug smuggling charges.
