Not Champagne, It's 'Coke'--the Illegal Kind

Associated Press

The bottles being carried by the four young women through customs at Heathrow Airport said "champagne" on the labels but were stuffed with $4.3 million worth of cocaine, government officials said.

The 33 pounds of cocaine, one of the biggest hauls in British history, were seized Sunday by customs officials when the women were stopped as they walked through the "nothing to declare" route, the Customs Department said.
