Rohan Myers raised suspicion after he appeared to be ‘very nervous’ when he arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on September 8 from Montego Bay, in his native, Jamaica.

He then began ‘sweating profusely’ after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers searched his luggage and questioned him about a pair of athletic compression pants in his baggage.

Authorities decided to carry out a body search on the crew member, who arrived on Caribbean Airlines Flight 39.

But while he was being transported to a private room for the search, Myers broke down and confessed he had attempted to smuggle the drugs inside his underwear.

‘I have cocaine on me; I’m supposed to take it to the hotel,’ he told customs officials.

Myers then revealed he had been wearing long-legged spandex compression underwear underneath his uniform.

Underneath the underwear, officers found four packages duct taped to his thighs and ankles, according to court records filed by agents from U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations. Article courtesy
