A news outlet re-reported Wednesday the finding of 200,000 kilos of cocaine at the airport.
Did you hear there was a massive drug bust at the Kent State University Airport some time this past week? That's not completely accurate. There was a massive drug bust at the airport, where 200,000 kilos of cocaine was seized, but that was in 2008. According to Kent State's Twitter feed: "Reports of a cocaine arrest at Kent State Airport are a result of a May 2008 story mistakenly reposted by a local news organization. Further investigation indicates that heavy web traffic of 2008 airport arrest story is what made it appear to be a new story. It's old news." The story has since been taken off Ohio.com's website and the AP Wire has removed it from circulation.
