Cakes in man’s luggage were actually chocolate-covered heroin


A man caught in New Jersey with packages of heroin coated in chocolate to disguise them as delicious cakes pleaded guilty to a resulting charge, prosecutors said.

Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick said Jacobo Leonel Orellana-Estrada, 21, a Guatemalan citizen, pleaded guilty in a Trenton federal court to one count of possession with intent to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin.

Orellana-Estrada arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport from Guatemala and Customs officers discovered what appeared to be a delicious looking six single-layer cakes in his luggage. Yes, its odd to bring a delicious cakes on a plane, but to put the delicious cakes in your luggage is straight up asking for someone to stick their hands in that cake and see what they pull out.

The officers investigated the cakes and found they were actually chocolate-covered packages of heroin totaling nearly 7 pounds.

Orellana-Estrada faces a maximum sentence of life in prison when he is sentenced in January.
