Woman smuggles cocaine in breasts.



Quote:
Spanish police arrested a Panamanian woman on Wednesday who landed in Barcelona from Bogota, Colombia with cocaine stuffed inside her breast implants.

The woman was taken to the police at Barcelona's El Prat airport after her vague answers to questions about the reasons for her trip from Bogota raised suspicion at the border control, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Spanish authorities carry out rigorous checks of passengers arriving on so-called "hot flights" from Latin America, to fight drug smuggling.

When border police discovered fresh scars and blood-stained gauze on the woman's chest she was taken to a nearby hospital to check her claim that she had recently undergone breast implant surgery.

The implants were found to carry 1.38 kg of cocaine.

Yes, I have read that in the Guardian this evening. And yes. Ouch.

Maybe the thread title could be amended to read "woman smuggles cocaine in breast implants"? Mind you, either way it is something rather........unpleasant to mull over.

Actually one of them leaked, and she was taken to a hospital.

Assuming it's pure, and that one 25% pure gram of cocaine can be sold for 50€, you do the math. Besides, drug smugglers are not known for their respect for human life, so as far as we know, that woman could have been coerced into doing that.
