Mexican police find kilogram of drugs in teddy bear

MEXICO CITY -- Mexican federal police said sniffer dogs have led them to find about 2.2 pounds (one kilogram) of synthetic drugs hidden inside a teddy bear.

Police video shows inspectors carefully cutting open the smiling brown bear to reveal plastic-wrapped bags of what appeared to be methamphetamines.

Police said Monday they were inspecting a package shipping office in Mexico City last week when the bear drew that dogs' attention.

The bear was labeled for shipment to the Philippines.

Mexico has become an increasingly big source of synthetic drugs for export to the US and other markets. (AP)
