Woman arrested in Spain for smuggling cocaine hidden inside breast implants
A woman has been arrested in Barcelona, Spain, for allegedly smuggling cocaine inside her breasts.
An international news agency said that the border police noticed suspicious activity when a Panamanian woman arrived on a flight from Bogota, Colombia, with scars and blood-stained gauze wrapped around her chest.
The woman was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where doctors worked to remove the implants from her body.
Spain's Interior Ministry said that doctors found three pounds of cocaine packed inside the implants, ABC News reports.
According to the report, many European authorities require passengers flying from Latin America to undergo strict security inspections to prevent drug smuggling.
