Two men from Puerto Rico were nabbed at Logan Airport on Wednesday after a state police dog sniffed out four kilos of cocaine in their suitcases as they arrived in Boston.
Adam Miranda, 18, and Luis Robles, 24, both of San Juan, were charged with trafficking cocaine over 200 grams.
State police troopers and agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and Immigration and Customs Enforcement approached the two men, who were traveling together on a San Juan to Boston flight, at about 7:15 p.m. after they landed.
According to police, “Rocky,” a state police dog, was alerted to two of the men’s suitcases after an initial interview with officers “that didn’t check out.”
After getting written consent from both men police searched their luggage.
Police discovered four kilos of a “white substance” believed to be cocaine.
Both men were arrested and held overnight.
Police said the street value of the drugs was roughly $32,000 to $38,000 per kilo.
Both men pleaded not guilty during their arraignment Thursday and were held on $200,000 cash bail.
