MIAMI — Police have arrested a drug dealer they say baked marijuana into cupcakes and sold them at Miami high schools.

The baker's identity was not released. Police said the chocolate cupcakes were wrapped in foil. The baker was buying more than $2,000 worth of pot a week, though not all of it was used in the cupcakes.

Police Chief Orlando Martinez de Castro said the cupcakes are an easier way to disguise drugs from police because the only way to tell is by eating them.

Friday's arrest was part of a city-wide drug sweep that netted 11 suspects.
