A drug-detection dog at New York’s Kennedy Airport had a nose for the blow when he detected something inside an arriving flight from the Dominican Republic law enforcement officials said Monday.

During a routine search, last weekend, Ari, the Customs, and Border Protection’s drug detection dog sniffed out 24 pounds of heroin and cocaine stashed inside a Delta Airline Jet that arrived at Kennedy Airport.

Ari sniffed out the presence narcotics hidden in both lavatories wall panels on May 8th. Customs discovered Five brick-shaped packages equaling 12 pounds with a street value of over $319,000.

The pooch’s nose didn’t stop there. Two days after making the discovery, Ari sniffed out another five bricks, 5 pounds of cocaine and 5 pounds of heroin on another Delta flight. Agents found the narcotics stashed behind the plane’s toilet, which is estimated to be worth around $281k.

An investigation is currently being conducted to find out who attempted to smuggle the drugs to the U.S.

“CBP officers are on the front line to ensure that these illicit narcotics get seized before these drugs enter this country,” said Robert Perez, director of CBP’s field operations in New York.
