(Hebron, Ky.) – Federal agents have again stopped a drug shipment coming through Greater Cincinnati. 


U.S. Customs agents seized nearly 50 pounds of marijuana hidden inside a bookcase at the DHL Express Consignment Operation at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport last week. 


An X-ray scan revealed a false compartment in the bookcase and the bricks of pot. 


Customs officials say the drugs were shipped from Mexico and headed for Texas.


No arrests have been made in connection with the marijuana shipment.
