FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - Federal authorities struck gold at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
U.S. Customs And Border Protection officers said a passenger tried to smuggle gold disguised as bracelets, keychains and belt buckles on Tuesday.
Investigators said the gold was painted black so it wouldn’t be detected by X-ray machines.
Officials said the gold is worth about $170,000.
