A man has been arrested after a kilogram of cocaine hidden inside a hollowed-out chunk of bologna sausage was delivered to his home.

Police in Holyoke, Massachusetts said they were tipped off by postal inspectors in Puerto Rico who were investigating similar shipments.

A dog confirmed the presence of drugs and the bologna sausage was cut open.

The meat was then repackaged and an undercover postal inspector delivered it to a Holyoke address. A woman sitting on the front steps signed for it.

Police then executed a search warrant and arrested a 30-year-old man on a cocaine trafficking charge.
