Man Caught Smuggling 3 Pounds Of Heroin In His Air Force 1s

In some ways, the thought process to this
crime was in the right place. Air Force 1s are some of the bulkiest and
heaviest sneakers out there, so when Perez Beltran decided to smuggle 3
pound of heroin into the United States, at least he was trying to think
logically. However, he underestimated just how good US Customs is at
catching people just like him.
Perez
Beltran, who is a United States citizen, flew in from the Dominican
Republic to John F. Kennedy International Airport with three pounds of
heroin stuffed into three separate pairs of Air Force 1s. During his
customs search, officers discovered the three pairs of Forces were
unusually heavy. Upon further inspection, they discovered powdered
heroin had been hidden in the lining and under the insole of the
sneaker.
The three pounds of
heroin has an estimated street value of $90,000, which doesn’t really
seem worth the risk. Besides, he’s hardly the first person to try to
sneak something illegal in his shoes and those people always seem to get
caught. Perez has been charged with federal narcotics smuggling. Don’t
smuggle drugs, kids.
