A law enforcement dog sniffed out a shipment of opium near O'Hare Airport.

The dog named Rogue was working with customs agents at the international mail facility when he discovered the drug. It was in a shipment of 16 embroidered jackets from Laos that was headed for Minnesota.

Officers who x-rayed the jackets did not find the drugs hidden in the lining or secret compartments. Instead, a test revealed that the jackets were soaked in liquid opium.

So far no one has been charged in the case.
