U.S. athlete Duron Harmon, of the New England Patriots, was arrested Friday in Costa Rica and expelled from the country after he attempted to enter Costa Rica carrying marijuana, according to the Ministry of Public Security.
A news release from the Ministry indicated that the athlete was found with 58 grams of marijuana, three pipes with cannabis oil, and four glass containers with compressed marijuana.
Harmon was returned to the United States. He had arrived in Costa Rica from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Harmon’s arrest took place on Friday afternoon after a routine luggage check on flights arriving from the United States. The Costa Rican control agents found the drugs hidden in a beverage can, the statement said.
