You know that feeling when the best cereals don’t make you feel active and ready for the day? Well, some people thought of this problem and came up with a solution. The problem? They could not get past airport security.

In one of the most innovative attempts at drug trafficking, federal agents seized frosted cereals at the Cincinnati Airport after Bico, a narcotic detector dog with US Customs and Border Protection, alerted authorities of cocaine-coated flakes on February 13.

The flakes were in a cereal shipment from South America, according to a press release from the agency.
