A sergeant from the Broward Sheriff’s Office was apprehended on Tuesday at Miami International Airport by Customs and Border Protection officials after being discovered with drugs, as per authorities.

As outlined in his arrest report, 35-year-old Bryan Vidal Lorenzo of Tamarac was found in possession of suspected MDMA upon arrival of his flight at the airport.

Miami-Dade police indicated that CBP officers informed them about discovering the drugs in Lorenzo’s luggage, specifically inside a pocket of his ski pants.
