Juan Rodriguez must have been trying to get the drug sniffing dogs to focus on something besides drugs. This was after $100k of cocaine found hidden in bologna was discovered by an undercover postal worker who was investigating suspicious shipments to Mr. Rodriguez. The Massachusetts man was arrested after police discovered a kilogram of cocaine hidden inside bologna that was hollowed out to conceal the drugs. The police dog was not thrown off by the scent of the bologna, and alerted authorities to the presence of the drugs. Police had also been alerted by the Puerto Rican counterparts who were investigating a potential smuggling operation.

Postal Inspectors in Puerto Rico were able to pass along the information regarding the shipment to Holyoke, Massachusetts police who sliced open the cold cuts after a police dog alerted officers to the presence of the drugs. After police cut open the bologna they repackaged the meat and delivered it to the home of Juan Rodriguez. Rodriguez, a 30-year-old man living in Massachusetts was arrested on cocaine trafficking charges after a search warrant was executed at his home.

Apparently Oscar Meyer didn’t have a way with cocaine like it does with b-o-l-o-g-n-a. Juan Rodriguez found out the hard way that $100k of cocaine, found in bologna of all things, was not the best way to sneak drugs past a police dog who was on the lookout for such shipments. You really can’t fault Rodriguez, or his counterpart on the other side of the smuggling ring, for lack of creativity.
