A 43-year-old woman was arrested at Madrid’s Adolfo Suarez after police say nearly four pounds of cocaine were found inside her breast implants, according to a press release obtained by Euro Weekly News.
Narcotics agents say the Venezuelan woman, who was arriving on a flight from Colombia, caught their attention because of her nervous demeanor. After a body search uncovered “certain irregularities and deformations in both breasts,” the traveler allegedly copped to stowing cocaine in her implants, according to the AFP.
The implants, which wound up containing 1.7 kilos — about 3.7 pounds —- of cocaine, were removed at a hospital. The woman, whose name has not been released, was detained for an alleged crime against public health, according to the Associated Press.
