Opium discovered in Pleasant Hill man's luggage

STERLING, Va.

Customs and border protection officers arrested 63-year-old Mehdi Moshirian at Washington Dulles International Airport on March 1. He'd flown in from Frankfurt, Germany.

Customs officials found the opium after an x-ray detected anomalies in two bottles of shampoo and a bottle of lotion. They say the drugs are worth about $4,000 on the street.
