Cocaine statue of Jesus

A woman attempted to bring a statue of Jesus made from Cocaine and plaster into the US from Mexico. The 6.6 pound statue was discovered in her car trunk by drug-sniffing dogs at the border crossing in Laredo, Texas. From Reuters:

U.S. border police arrested a 61-year-old Mexican man accused of offering the woman $80 to carry the statue to the bus station in downtown Laredo.

The woman escaped back to Mexico, (an official at the U.S. Attorney's Office Southern District of Texas) said.
