Police noticed something amiss when a man’s pants were fitting a bit snug last week at a New York airport.
Juan Carlos Galan Luperon was arrested at JFK after he allegedly tried to smuggle 10 pounds of cocaine strapped to his legs.
Police said they noticed Luperon was “busting out of his pants” and he seemed a bit nervous.
Luperon, a US citizen who lives in Manhattan, had arrived at JFK from the Dominican Republic, according to reports.
The officers took Luperon to a private room where they searched him and allegedly found packages of white powder taped to his legs, authorities said.
The powder tested positive for cocaine, police said.
Luperon was arrested on federal narcotics-smuggling charges.
