Officials: Woman Caught at Maryland Airport With $90,000 in Cocaine

A woman with $90,000 of cocaine in her luggage was caught at Baltimore–Washington International Airport, customs officials said. 

Officers found nearly 3 pounds of the drug in the bottom of a Jamaican woman's suitcase Monday afternoon, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

Officers noticed the suitcase was unusually thick and saw the cocaine during an X-ray scan.

Officers say 30-year-old

Trudian James, 30, of Hanover Parish, Jamaica, was turned over to Maryland State Police. Online court records show James was charged with several drug offenses.

Court records do not list a lawyer for James.
