On Saturday, Rapper Vic Mensah, 28, was arrested at Washington Dulles International Airport after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers discovered a stash of illicit narcotics in his baggage.
Victor Kwesi Mensah arrived on board a flight from Ghana at approximately 7 a.m. on Saturday.
During a secondary baggage examination, CBP officers discovered about 41 grams of liquid Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), about 124 grams of Psilocybin capsules, 178 grams of Psilocybin gummies, and six grams of Psilocybin mushrooms concealed inside Mensah’s luggage.
Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority (MWAA) Police officers responded and charged Mensah with felony narcotics possession charges. MWAA Police officers took custody of Mensah and the illicit narcotics.
Despite some states decriminalizing certain personal quantities of illicit narcotics, travelers should be aware that narcotics possession remains illegal under federal law.
Additionally, travelers should know that they are subject to CBP federal inspection upon departing from and arriving to the United States.
