    HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Colombian man has been sentenced to 10 years in U.S. prison for trying to smuggle in three kilograms of heroin that had been soaked into his clothes, authorities said on Friday.

    David Jose Hernandez, 65, was nabbed at the Houston airport on May 29, 2002, when he arrived on a flight from Caracas, Venezuela, and customs agents noticed a "very strong vinegary odor emanating from his luggage," U.S. Attorney Michael Shelby said in a statement.

    "Further examination resulted in the discovery the clothing contained in the luggage had apparently been soaked in heroin,"
