Maine Drug Enforcement Officers Discover Cocaine Disguised As Cake


The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said Wednesday that a man from New York and a woman from Maine are facing charges after cocaine disguised as a cake was found in their vehicle.

On Tuesday, police stopped the car on Interstate 295 in Gardiner after receiving a tip, and a drug-sniffing dog discovered 4 pounds (2 kilograms) of cocaine worth $200,000 on the street, along with $1,900 in cash, according to the MDEA.

According to officials, about 2 pounds of cocaine was disguised as a marble cake with coffee grounds used to mask the odor.

The two were released on bail and were scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, though it was unclear whether they had a lawyer.

Agents believe the drugs were destined for distribution in Kennebec and Somerset counties, and the MDEA was assisted in its investigation by the Winslow Police Department, the Maine State Police, and Homeland Security Investigations.
