BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- NASA officials are investigating the discovery of cocaine at the Kennedy Space Center for the second time in a little over a year, officials told WFTV Tuesday. In the recent incident, 4.2 grams of cocaine were found at KSC.
While NASA officials have not released an exact location of where the drug was found, NASA did say it was not found in any secured shuttle processing area.
The Inspector General's Office launched the investigation on March 7 after the cocaine was found on Space Center grounds and reported to security. The drug was sent to a lab to confirm it was cocaine.
In January 2010, there was cocaine residue found inside a small plastic bag near a restroom in the space shuttle Discovery's hanger.
NASA and its contractor, United Space Alliance, performed drug tests on employees shortly after the drugs were found, but no one tested positive. There were no arrests made and no one was fired in the case.
