Enter Betty, a CBP narcotic detector dog, who alerted investigators Nov. 11 to a suspicious shipment of diapers en route from Texas to a residence in Australia.

According to a news release, the diapers appeared to be firm and unusually heavy, and further investigation revealed that the shipment contained more than 4 pounds of methamphetamine concealed within the diapers.

Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie stated that the “dirty” diapers are only the latest in a lengthy list of extreme measures smugglers take to conceal their illicit shipments.

“The Port of Cincinnati officers are taught to look outside the box when looking for narcotics, and they do a wonderful job finding those illegal shipments,” Gillespie stated.
