Woman hides 1.5kg of liquid cocaine in breasts

A Honduran woman tried to smuggle 1.5kg of liquid cocaine from Colombia to Spain in her breasts.

She was stopped at the security line at El Dorado airport in Bogota, Colombia’s capital.

Colonel Diego Rosero of the airport police said Paola Deyanira Sabillon appeared nervous and acted strangely, and that this aroused suspicion.

An X-ray of the 22-year-old woman revealed she recently had surgery on her breasts.

The woman confessed that an "unknown substance" had been put inside her, and that she was under orders to transport it to the Spanish city of Barcelona.

Doctors at a Bogota hospital removed the two tied-up latex gloves filled with liquid cocaine, reported Mail Online.

The drugs are estimated to be worth £150,000 (S$320,000).
