READING, Pa. (AP) - Four men have been jailed on charges they smuggled cocaine from the Dominican Republic to eastern Pennsylvania inside Xbox video game systems.

The Reading Eagle (https://bit.ly/1wndOmo ) reports the Reading men remained in the Berks County Jail after their arrests Saturday.

They’ve been identified as 22-year-old Felix Rodriguez-Pabon; 26-year-old Nelson Martinez; 20-year-old Wilson Herrera; and a man identified only as Yefries Herrera.

County detectives say federal Homeland Security Investigations officials alerted them to the shipments earlier in the week. The detectives say the drugs were being shipped inside the game consoles to addresses in Berks County, including a Reading home where Martinez and the Herreras lived.

Detectives say one package they intercepted contained more than two pounds of cocaine worth more than $100,000 if sold on the street.
