WASHINGTON (WTVR)–Border protection agents made a major bust and an unusual discovery inside facial cream and food jars at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia.

The custom officials found 13 pounds of cocaine. Police said the cocaine was hidden behind a second wall lining in seven plastic cream and honey jars.

The two men carrying the jars were posing as businessmen and were flying into Virginia on different flights.

Both men were sent back to Guatemala and barred from returning to the United States. 

Authorities believe that the men were unknowingly transporting the product to a Maryland address.
