Police arrest US man allegedly carrying pot brownies through Juan Santamaría Int’l Airport
Police officers arrested a U.S. citizen on drug charges at the Juan Santamaría International Airport when they discovered a package inside his luggage containing marijuana brownies.
A K-9 unit dog detected the special brownies inside a backpack belonging to the 58-year-old man, according to a press release from the Public Security Ministry. The release said the man’s last name was Salladay, and he’s also a Costa Rica resident.
Dogs found the drugs while performing routine luggage inspections on two local flights arriving from the provinces of Guanacaste and Puntarenas.
Costa Rica’s Air Surveillance Service seized the brownies after tests confirmed they contained some 365 grams of marijuana.
