Spanish airport cops seize cocaine-packed Bulgarian airbags
Panamanian cuffed over extra-fun funbags
A 20-year-old Panamanian woman was cuffed at Barcelona Airport earlier this week for packing over a kilo of Bolivian marching powder in two Bulgarian airbags.
The unnamed alleged mule caught the attention of cops after disembarking from a flight from Bogota. When questioned as to the reason for her visit, she offered "vague answers", said cops, which prompted a body search for drugs.
The officer conducting the pat-down said she noticed the suspect had a bloody bandage under each breast, and when they were removed, cops saw open wounds revealing "an unusual white object".
The traveller claimed to have had a boob job a couple of months previously, but when she was taken to hospital for a X-ray and implant extraction, police said they discovered 1.377kg of cocaine in a pair of improvised jub enhancers (pictured).
Cops admitted it was the first time they'd seen this particular method of smuggling charlie, which is described by El Mundo as posing "a serious risk for the person carrying the cocaine". Indeed, cops said hospital tests had shown that the woman had traces of nose Ajax in her system as a result of her ill-advised operation. ®
In news reports on other websites...
the police are quoted as saying that "they've never come across breast implants like these before".
An unfortunate turn of phrase.
I suppose that's a cheaper way of doing it, but, dear god, that's horrible. I wonder if this woman was coerced into doing this.
Re: Open wounds!?
Another reason not to do cocaine. This stuff's not exactly fair trade.
