Sometimes people learn the hard way what not to carry on a holiday trip.
That was the case for a Guatemalan man caught at Washington, DC's Dulles International Airport with a baked chicken stuffed with something surprising.
The bird contained 60 grams of cocaine that has a street value of about 43-hundred dollars.
U.S. Customs agents at the airport arrested 32-year-old Wagner Linares Aragon when they discovered the chicken during a random inspection.
Steve Sapp of the Department of Homeland Security says the man arrived at Dulles on a flight from El Salvador just after midnight last Saturday.
Around the holidays, Sapp says agents check agricultural products very carefully to make sure nothing forbidden is entering the country.
