CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Customs agents found heroin in the suitcase of an American citizen returning from Jamaica the day before Thanksgiving.

United States Customs and Border Protection officers at Charlotte Douglas International Airport arrested a 34-year-old man arriving from Montego Bay, Jamaica, last Wednesday.

Authorities say 10 grams of heroin was found in the man's suitcase while officers were conducting routine inspections.

The man was arrested on state charges and turned over to the CDIA police.

A second man was arrested on Saturday for an outstanding dangerous drugs warrant from Ohio.
