Long Beach Man Arrested at LAX for Meth Disguised as Snickers Candy Bars

Rogelio Harris of Long Beach, was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations while preparing to board a flight to Japan. The agents were conducting routine baggage inspections when they noticed a box labeled as Snickers bars inside Harris' checked luggage and discovered 45 individually wrapped "candy bars." Each was coated in a chocolate-like substance to make the contents of the package appear to be a real Snickers bar. Agents tested the bars and found they contained a white, crystalline substance, which was determined to be methamphetamine. The contraband candies contained four pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of about $250,000 in Japan.

Harris has been charged by federal authorities and faces one count of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. If convicted, he faces at least 10 years in federal prison and a possible maximum sentence penalty of life in prison.

If you or someone you know has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, drug trafficking, or any other type of drug crime, it is essential to hire an aggressive Los Angeles criminal attorney who can fight for your future.
