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 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. ®
