The busty traveller from Colombia was being subjected to a random check at the Frankfurt airport.
But, as agents took the 24-year-old woman aside, she began to grimace. Then she double-over in pain, clutching her breasts.
Curious customs agents were surprised when they saw she had swollen fresh scars from a very recent operation. The sutures had been very poorly applied.
They became suspicious.
In increasing agony, the 24-year old soon revealed all.
She knew she’d been busted.
She admitted her excessive implants were actually bags of cocaine.
The woman was taken into custody, and transferred to a nearby hospital.
They removed two 500 gram blocks of cocaine — wrapped in plastic — from her breasts.
The up-front street value of her internal cargo was estimated at $A500,000.
“This is the first case in Germany in which drugs have been smuggled in this fashion,” customs spokesman Hans-Juergen Schmidt told reporters.
The poor quality of her breast surgery showed the “completely indifferent to human life and the life-threatening conditions of their drug carriers,” he said.
