Cristian Vasquez Martinez, a former Tampa Bay Rays’ prospect was caught trying to smuggle 6 pounds of cocaine through JFK airport. Martinez landed in JFK from the Dominican Republic. He was randomly searched and authorities found 6 pounds of cocaine hidden in four pairs of sneakers in his luggage. The value of those shoes was $138,000. Martinez’s contract with the Rays was apparently terminated last month.
In case you were wondering, this is what he thought he was going to be like…
Alas, Martinez was not whisked away to meet El Patrón.
