Federal agents discovered 20 pounds of opium concealed inside false walls of two drums. The shipment arrived in the U.S. from Thailand -- and was wrapped in small individual plastic packages.

Opium is used to produce heroin, which authorities say is now a serious problem in America. No word yet of any arrests in this case.
