STERLING, Va. (AP) - Customs officials say nearly four pounds of cocaine was found hidden in drink boxes and a spice bottle at Washington Dulles International Airport.
 
    
U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Tuesday that officers found the cocaine Saturday night in the luggage of two Guatemalan men arriving from El Salvador. Officials say they found about six ounces of cocaine in a garlic salt bottle and almost 3 1/2 pounds in four drink boxes. 
 
    
Customs officials say 44-year-old Esteban Gustavo Ischiu Rojas and 42-year-old Jose Victor Munoz Lemus were traveling together and presented themselves as couriers on business travel. Officials say the two were turned over to police for prosecution on drug charges. An immigration detainer was also placed on them.
