Opium Found Concealed in Bars of Soap

On Tuesday, September 9, 2014, an airmail package from Thailand arrived at the San Francisco International Airport. While monitoring the package through an x-ray machine, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at this mail facility noted abnormalities within the contents.

Upon opening the package, officers discovered 66 individually wrapped bars of hollowed out soap. Each bar of soap was then found to contain a black ball of opium inside. This find weighed in at 8.9 pounds.
