CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati say they intercepted 25 pounds of liquid cocaine.

The package was said to be rose water, officials say, and the shipment contained 12 bottles of both clear and rose-colored liquid.

Officers say they tested the liquid, which was positive for cocaine.

The package was shipped from Medelin, Columbia and was supposed to end up in Revere, Massachusetts, said CBP officials.
