A woman was arrested in Spain after it was found that she was smuggling cocaine in her breast implants.
An airport security check in Spain led to an operating table for a passenger. Authorities say they found she had tucked packs of cocaine in her breast implants.
The Panamanian citizen landed at Barcelona's Prat airport on a so-called "hot flight," one that came from a destination known for drug trafficking -- in this case Bogota, Colombia.
The passenger came under the scrutiny of security agents, who weren't satisfied with the vague answers she kept giving about why she was in town, Spain's interior ministry said.
Her behavior aroused the suspicion of officers that she might be carrying drugs either in her luggage or on her.
When a female officer patted down the woman, she found bloodied bandage material under the passenger's breasts. The gauze, the officer found, was covering incisions. And the breasts were hiding "a white foreign material."
Fresh breast implants, the suspect mustered an explanation. Must not have healed up right.
The story didn't convince police, who hauled her off to a hospital.
"There, a medical team extracted a bag-shaped prosthesis from each breast containing a white pasty substance," the ministry said.
The implants contained about 3 pounds of cocaine.
Pure cocaine goes for about $35,000 a pound, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Ninety percent of cocaine trafficked into the United States comes from Colombia.
