American pilot Kenneth Parrock was arrested in Peru, as police found almost 22 pounds of cocaine in one of his bags.
However, Parrock claims the cocaine wasn’t his.
The pilot had two bags, and while he admits that both bags belong to him, he says that the contents in one of them, the cocaine, does not.
His plane was headed to Dubai and Taipei, with a layover in Peru. Peruvian authorities are investigating to see if he’s collaborating with Asian drug smugglers.
