    Graphite used to smuggle cocaine in US; Canadian and Australian juniors issue project updates and outline targets for 2015

    Police in Oklahoma made one of the biggest seizures of smuggled cocaine in state history last month, when they discovered around $5m-worth of the drug hidden in blocks of graphite powder, carbon paper, cellophane and packing tape.

    According to a report by Mustang News, the cocaine was discovered when sheriffs of Canadian County in Oklahoma pulled over a truck on Interstate 40 to the east of Oklahoma City.

    "The graphite powder would have been added in an attempt to mask the drug odours from drug dogs my deputies had at the scene," Sherriff Randall Edwards is quoted as saying.

    Graphite has excellent insulation properties and is often used in protective coating applications, making it an ideal mask for smuggling products that can be detected by scent.

    The Canadian County sheriffs decided that the driver of the truck was probably ignorant of the cocaine, which had been stowed in specially made secret compartment of a truck that was being used to haul the cars. The driver was released and the truck was impounded.
