United States - Two ladies from Bronx have been caught smuggling six and a half kilos of cocaine hidden in 'diapers' under their pants.
Returning to New York’s JFK Airport from the Dominican Republic, Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale were relying on the cocaine girdles to give off a natural appearance.
However, Customs and Border Protection officers were alerted when drug-sniffing dogs started to go wild.
Having checked their luggage but finding no trace of drugs, the officers began a pat-down of the two women and discovered the cocaine filled diapers around the ladies hindquarters.
The ladies were then read their rights, arrested and taken into custody.
Blassingale is being held in jail by a Brooklyn federal judge and Pena has been released on a $150,000 bail bond, according to the New York Post.
