Man Arrested for Traveling with Chocolate Cakes… AKA Heroin

Thursday, November 9, 2017

arrestedA man in New Jersey was busted with packages of heroin at the airport. He had tried to disguise them by covering them with chocolate frosting. While initially claiming they were delicious chocolate cakes, authorities found otherwise. 

Jacobo Leonel Orellana-Estrada, 21, a Guatemalan citizen, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin. 

Orellana-Estrada arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport from Guatemala and Customs officers quickly discovered he was hiding heroin and not the  six single-layer cakes that he claimed to have. Nice try!

The chocolate-covered packages of heroin totaled nearly 7 pounds!

The Guatemalan now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison; he will be sentenced in January.
