The Coke Bust

Drug lords would love to hire her as a drug mule! (courtesy of weirdexistence.com)

I love it when a title carries a double meaning and describes a story as accurately as this one.

Yesterday in Barcelona, custom officials at Prat Airport questioned a woman who just disembarked from a “hot flight” from Bogota, Colombia. The term “hot flight” is used to describe any flight coming from a destination notorious for drug trafficking, and Bogota certainly qualifies.

Oddly enough, the woman’s responses to their questions were so vague that officials immediately grew suspicious and contacted security. A female officer patted the woman down and discovered some bloody bandages underneath her breasts. Further inspection revealed incisions under each breast, as well as the presence of a white, pasty substance.

The Colombian woman claimed that she recently had breast augmentation surgery, but security wasn’t buying it. They immediately shipped her off to a nearby hospital and later, a medical team extracted each of her breast implants. That’s when they made a bizarre discovery.

Her implants were filled with cocaine. All together the woman had three pounds of the illegal drug, worth more than $100,000 on the street. And she of course ended up in jail.

That’s right, people. Police made a coke bust on a bust filled with coke. Talk about irony!

  1. Creative, funny, yet disturbing all at the same time. The lengths some people go to for money is insane!

  2. LOL That is almost right out of the script of Nip Tuck.
