A man was busted at JFK Airport for concealing cocaine in powdered custard packages, officials said.

A man flying into John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport was caught allegedly trying to smuggle nearly 18 pounds of cocaine into the country by hiding it in powered custard.

Godfrey Cassius had just arrived on a flight from Guyana on April 22 when he was busted with the drugs, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said.

During an inspection of his baggage CBP officers discovered eight packages of “Champion” custard powder within the luggage, officials said.

Upon examining the packets, officers found a white powder, which had a strong chemical odor. The powder tested positive for cocaine, which had a total weight of 17.9 pounds and approximate street value $300,000, the CBP said.

Godfrey Cassius was arrested for the importation of a controlled substance and faces federal narcotics smuggling charges, according to officials.
