Police in Mexico say they found 84 pounds (38 one-kilogram packets) of cocaine inside the luggage of a guy who claimed to be a cancer patient, as he boarded a Learjet “air ambulance’ from Tijuana to New York City.
The “cancer patient” arrived at the Tijuana airport in an ambulance, and was accompanied by two female paramedics.
Drug-sniffing dogs found 38 packages of cocaine inside the man's three suitcases.
The supposed cancer patient, the supposed paramedics, and four others aboard the jet were all detained pending investigation.
