The New York Post reports that a 24-year-old Colombian woman was arrested at an airport in Frankfurt, Germany after being caught with two pounds of cocaine in her breast implants. Authorities noticed only after she claimed to be in excruciating pain. The authorities conducted a body search, and they noticed fresh scars. The woman then admitted that she had allowed someone to insert 500-gram packages in her breasts during an illegitimate surgery.
Spokesman Hans-Juergen Schmidt told reporters:
“This is the first case in Germany in which drugs have been smuggled in this fashion,”
and added that fiascos like this proved that drugs smugglers
“are completely indifferent to human life and the life-threatening conditions of their drug carriers.”
According to NYP, the drugs were valued at $220,000 and destined for Spain. Maybe the pay that she would have received would have been worth the pain to her but now instead she is currently facing jail time on drug trafficking charges.
Don’t smuggle drugs folks.
