Officials reported Jamaican citizen Stefisha Miller had landed at JFK from Kingston, Jamaica’s capital, on Sunday when U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers found two bottles of Bailey’s Irish Cream in her duty-free box — and one of the bottles contained a bag of white powder.

The cocaine seized weighed six pounds and had an estimated street value of $110,000, authorities reported.

“The smuggling of illicit drugs poses a significant threat to our nation, and CBP does its part in keeping these drugs off our streets,” Francis J.
