Federal authorities confiscated more than 30 pounds of opium powder from a passenger flying into MSP International Airport from Laos March 4.   



MINNEAPOLIS - A woman is facing smuggling charges after federal authorities say they found 30 pounds of opium powder in her luggage at MSP International Airport.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers found the drugs March 4 after the suspect flew in from Laos via Tokyo. During a check of the 35-year-old woman's baggage inspectors noticed an unusually large amount of dry beverage powder in a suitcase. They opened a packet of what was listed as green tea and instead found a light brown powder that tested positive for opium. In total, 33.5 pounds of opium powder was confiscated.
The woman was arrested and turned over to local authorities for prosecution.
“Our officers are committed to keeping our nation safe," said Minneapolis Area Port Director Jennifer De La O. "This interception is an example of their hard work to keep narcotics off the streets."
CBP conducts operations at ports of entry throughout the United States, and regularly screens arriving international passengers and cargo for narcotics, weapons, and other restricted or prohibited products.
