Maine police discovered cocaine disguised as cake; arrest two

Police in Maine found 4 pounds of cocaine being passed off as cake and arrested two people on tuesday. Let us tell you that John Cedeno, a 25-year-old New York City man, and Chelsy Cochran, a 33-year-old Mainer, had the coke in their car when they were traveling to Gardiner, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency reported in a Facebook post.

The cops were already investigating Cedeno, suspecting the same he started distributing the cake “considerable amounts of cocaine” in central Maine, according to the post. "State police pulled them over in Gardiner, about 40 miles northeast of Portland, and brought in a dog to search the car", the Maine DEA said. They found cocaine wrapped in a cellophane cake box with coffee grounds, and cops estimated its street value at $200,000.

"Cedeno was held on $750,000 bail, while Cochran’s bail was set at $50,000", police said. In 2016, Cedeno pleaded guilty to one drug trafficking charge and took a 4-year prison sentence after cops found him in a home with nearly 40 grams of heroin. The Maine DEA said its investigation is ongoing and could lead to more arrests.
