VA Cocaine Found in Fruit Juice Cans

732-pounds of cocaine was seized in Norfolk, Virginia last month.

Officials say it was smuggled inside fruit juice cans.

They found the drugs on a ship that sailed into the port of Norfolk.

The cocaine has a street value of $100 million.

It was headed to New York.

The ship was flagged as soon as it left Trinidad Tobago.

But border control couldn't check it until it got to the u-s.

Border officials say this is an example of how creative drug traffickers are getting.

No arrests have been made.
