BOSTON (CBS) – State police arrested a man at Logan Airport Monday night for allegedly trying to smuggle cocaine in his shoes.

Twenty-four-year-old Carlos Lanns of Hamilton, New Jersey, arrived in Boston on a JetBlue flight from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

“Following a joint investigation involving US Customs and Border Protection, troopers and customs officers recovered just over two kilograms of cocaine secreted inside the insoles of various pairs of shoes in the passenger’s checked luggage,” police said in a statement Tuesday.

State police spokesman David Procopio said the insoles were made of cocaine and were hidden inside four pairs of shoes.

Prosecutors said the cocaine has a street value of more than $200,000.

Lanns pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday in East Boston District Court.

He was ordered held on $300,000 bail. If he posts that bail, Lanns must also turn in his passport and submit to GPS monitoring

So, arriving from the D.R. and the coke was in his checked luggage/ 4 pairs of shoes. D.R. security fail? Drug sniffing doggies got suspicious?

I guess they were in shoes in checked luggage and I don’t know if he had been wearing the shoes often. But I’d think that the coke would poss. get a leather-y smell or what Frank Zappa once called “Stinkfoot”... Eww.

“Like a felon!”

Appropriate!

I thought the MSM only gave out the name and photograph when it sheds a bad light on the straight white Christian male. Everyone else is referred to as ‘a person’ or ‘youth’ or an ‘immigrant’, without a picture or without a clear picture.

CBS may lose its politically correct stripes for this one!

Hey,man! They are not my shoes! This dude at the airport in the Dominican Republic asked me to wear them as a favor to him, to give them to his blind, 102 year old father waiting at the airport in the US! I had no idea there was any contraband in the shoes. I promise!

With shoes like those, it will be a long time before he walks.

And why is linking JetBlue to this criminal so important to the headline writer?

Thanks for the obscure WKRP reference. One of the funnier ones, right up there with the turkey episode.

Maybe they have a relative working for a competing airline and they can make Jet Blue look bad by making sure it got into headline...

What gets me is how this dork though he could get away with smuggling 2 kilos in shoes!

A couple hundred grams-- maybe. If you wrap it right, it might get past the drug sniffing dogs, but two kilos? No way! Some criminals are even more stupid than they are greedy.

I've read about some of these drug smugglers stuffing coke in condoms and swallowing them. That's got to do some real irritation to the digestive system, particularly if the stomach acid erodes it enough before it exits.

Then there are the dorks who actually buy and snort crap like that which is extracted from human poo!

If I were ever inclined to get into the narcotics business, I think basement growing and refining in the 'hood would present far less risk compared to the alternatives.

Elevator insoles made of cocaine. “They really make you high!”.

Following a joint investigation...

I thought this was a cocaine bust, not a marijuana bust...

Five or six years before, 9/11, I was flying out of Mo Bay Jamacia and someone from airport security made be sit on a tall chair while they gently removed my shoes one at a time and stuck their nose inside. That seemed odd, to say the least, but maybe this is what they were looking for.
