A student moving into her dorm at the Fashion Institute of Technology on Friday opened up her suitcase and found ten pounds of cocaine inside. The 21-year-old quickly called the police and handed over the four packages, which are worth about $150,000. “She said she had no idea how it got there,” a police source tells the Post. The student had taken a flight from Trinidad and Tobago to JFK, and police suspect a smuggler stashed the drugs in the wrong suitcase. Or she’s homesick and this is just an elaborate plot to make the NYPD chew her out for having drugs in her room. (It’s probably the first one.)
