Two human fetuses were found in a jar carried by two women at Miami International Airport, according to Miami-Dade spokesman Roy Rutland.

The women were returning home from Havana, Cuba, on Jan. 30 when U.S. Customs and Border Protection saw the fetuses in the clear jar.

The fetuses, one male and one female, were supposed to be delivered to a Miami resident for Santería purposes, according to The Miami Herald.

Rutland said that a medical examiner determined the 20-week-old fetuses were stillborn and that there was no foul play involved.

Neither of the women was arrested.
