UK: Former America’s Got Talent dancer, 28, caught with more than £1million of cannabis at Manchester Airport is jailed for 18 months

A former America’s Got Talent star has been jailed after being caught with more than 30kg of cannabis at Manchester Airport.

Elijah Flores, who danced on the US version of the popular talent show, was found by border force officials to be carrying 37.2kg of the class B drug after arriving on a flight from Thailand.

He was taken to the baggage search area after denying he had anything to declare to customs when he landed at Manchester Airport Terminal 2 on November 21 last year, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Officers found 64 packages of cannabis in his four bags, with an estimated street value of almost £1million.

Flores claimed he was offered $3,000 by a ‘friend’ to take drugs into the UK and has now been jailed after he admitted importing class B drugs.
