BOSTON (CBS) – Two men from Puerto Rico were arrested at Logan Airport Wednesday night for carrying four kilograms of cocaine in their suitcases.

Adam I. Miranda, 18, and Luis Robles, 24, were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and conspiracy to commit narcotics laws.

Miranda and Robles were traveling together on a flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Boston. Police questioned them after they landed in Boston at around 7:15.

A State Police dog, named “Rocky,” then sniffed out the cocaine from their bags, according to police.

The street value of the drugs is estimated between $32,000 and $38,000 per kilo, or a total of between $128,000 and $152,000.

The men were expected to be arraigned at East Boston District Court on Thursday.
