A man is under arrest after police say he was caught at John F. Kennedy International Airport trying to smuggle drugs.

Authorities say Romario Lewis, a Jamaican citizen, arrived at JFK from Kingston on April 16 and presented himself for inspection.

During the examination of Lewis’ suitcase, authorities say he exhibited numerous signs of nervousness.

CBP officers conducted a physical search of Lewis and discovered two packages in the subject’s groin area.

The two packages contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine.

An approximate weight of 1 pound of cocaine was seized, with an estimated street value of more than $19,000 according to DEA statistics.

CBP officers placed Lewis under arrest and turned him over to Homeland Security Investigations.

He now faces federal narcotics smuggling charges and will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

  6. Some of us can say that no we wouldn’t do it because we can go out there and work even if the pay is not enough OK that’s good and dandy but there is some that can not hold that low paying job if they wanted too because of many situations, some may not knoq how to do anything else but what he got caught doing, we never know how a person is living their life and we can never judge a person who decides to go the route he did we are not in his shoes or any other person and I wouldn’t judge him because I couldn’t never say at my worse and lowest what would do. I can’t JIDGE anyone for anything that they do because I’m not in their shoes. I live a honest and decent life and I work hard, I’m a single mother of two and I’ve been doing this on my own for a long time and I’ve been up ups and downs some downs that you would want to just give up but by the grace of God he answered my prayers. I won’t judge him and despite what he got caught for I wish him the best..
