Federal customs agents busted a Jamaica man for allegedly smuggling cocaine stateside in his underwear.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers pulled down Romario Lewis’ pants when he got off a flight in John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York April 16. What they found was a bulging sack of cocaine between his legs.

The officers patted Lewis down after his nervous mannerisms made them suspicious. They felt something in the groin area, so they checked further.

What they found was two sacks of cocaine stuffed between a pair of red undies and gray cycling shorts. The seized cocaine holds an estimated value of $19,000.

Lewis was turned over to Homeland Security and faces charges of possession and importation of cocaine. Also, a picture of him in his underwear is on the Internet forever.

“U. S. Customs and Border Protection officers in New York are always discovering interesting concealment methods,” reads a statement from the agency.
