Multi-Agency Operation Results in Cocaine Seizure

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State police say three Colorado men have been arrested and more than 70 pounds of cocaine seized at Baton Rouge Metro Airport.

State police said agents were notified that federal authorities were tracking a suspicious plane flying from McAllen, Texas, to Atlanta. The plane was searched on Tuesday after landing to refuel in Baton Rouge.

The three men were being held Wednesday on $1 million bond. They were booked on counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

They were identified as 55-year-old Vincenzo Salzano, his 32-year-old son, Armando Salzano and 32-year-old son-in-law, Mohammad Iman Nekouie. The elder Salzano and Nekouie are from Aurora, Colo.; Armando Salzano is from Littleton, Colo. Online jail records provided no information about their attorneys.
