KINGSTON, Jamaica—Jamaican authorities have seized 24 pounds of cocaine concealed inside the shell of an X-Box.

The Jamaica Customs Department says that the cocaine was discovered at Kingston's airport shortly after a Guyanese traveler cleared customs with a laptop and a suitcase.

The man returned to the baggage area, claiming he left a third item. Officials say customs officers scanned and searched the Xbox in his bag and found the cocaine.

The Department said Tuesday the man acknowledged he was paid $5 million to transport the drugs.

Last month, authorities at Guyana's main airport revoked security passes for a dozen employees following a rise in cocaine-stuffed suitcases intercepted on flights to New York.
