Cocaine curves model caught at airport

2011-12-21 22:25

Rome - Italian airport police eyeing up a busty Spanish model's curves made a startling discovery on Wednesday - 2.5kg of pure cocaine stashed as implants in her bust and backside.

The 33-year-old woman arriving in Rome from Sao Paulo in Brazil was wearing tight-fitting clothes to enhance her voluptuousness, hoping that her looks might distract the attention of border police, Ansa news agency reported.

The report said the woman drew suspicion however after giving unclear answers to questions about the reasons for her trip to Italy to an officer. The discovery was made when two female investigators conducted a strip search.

Smuggling methods through Rome's Fiumicino airport have become ever more ingenious, including cocaine found hidden inside baggage trolleys in 2010.

In June, police arrested traffickers who were smuggling 220kg of cocaine hidden in crates of chalk statues shipped through Fiumicino.

    The drug mules are pulling out every trick in the book, hiding them in dreadlocks, now in implants...what next.

      Neither of which worked!!

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-22 09:54

      @Jay, well not for these two people. Many before them made it work, the only reason they didn't is because they buckled under questioning.

      rbczovczov - 2011-12-22 14:07

      @Jay you would be surprised how many other methods they using which the authorities haven't caught up to yet.

      rbczovczov - 2011-12-22 14:15

      Someone told me drug barons in Brazil pay good money to anyone who comes forward with a new ingenious way to smuggle drugs.

      Colin - 2011-12-22 15:31

      unfortunately for every one the catch another 100 doesn't get caught.

  • Azande - 2011-12-21 23:05

    From Brazil, AGAIN. Another one down.

      Juicecard - 2011-12-22 02:36

      call them "samba girls!"

      rbczovczov - 2011-12-22 14:14

      Now its going to be difficult for our well-endowed South African women to travel abroad all thanks to this lady and her fake behind. Ladies you better brace yourselves for a whole lot of strip searching.

  • Andrew - 2011-12-22 06:38

    Dumps the drugs onto he market. That will reduce the incentive to supply drugs.

  • Martinet - 2011-12-22 07:37

    What? I don't understand... maybe it's coz it's THAT time of the year or something, but, if the drugs were in the implants, how did they discover it? Doesn't implants mean it's inside your body?

      natja.carli - 2011-12-22 08:08

      I agree, the article does not exactly make it clear...

      christo.stone - 2011-12-22 09:25

      "stashed as implants in her bust and backside" aka like padding...

      Martinet - 2011-12-22 11:54

      @Chisto; thanks! Still find it a bit weird though... as she was wearing tight fitting clothes? Anyways... :)

  • Mmamorena Renie Motshwanedi - 2011-12-22 07:46

    Whats up with these women, that South African lady executed in China was not example enough for them to stop doing this...?

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-22 09:56

      No, drug mules are made up of two types, those that are desperate and willing and those who are unknowingly carrying drugs. Either way, it is the drug kingpins who get away with it everytime..

  • stephan.kruger1 - 2011-12-22 07:49

    Hey! how about making false teeth out of coke and then smuggling it in! There is an Idea and a headline!

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-22 09:56

      Um because your spit will dissolve it??

  • mail.gareth.morgan - 2011-12-22 08:05

    She was smuggling "Crack" !

      Bob - 2011-12-22 09:33

      @mail.gareth.morgan...no they only mentioned breasts and buttocks....:) lol So it is only breast cocaine or buttock cocaineā€¦no crack cocaine in this case!

      ivan.coetzee2 - 2011-12-22 09:44

      I thought "crack" was legal unless sold??

      Zion - 2011-12-22 15:20

      Ya, but crack is not always drugs; Usually something better.

  • ivan.coetzee2 - 2011-12-22 09:01

    Wow these mules are becoming ever more ingenious! What will they think of next? I bet we in SA actually have a school that teaches this dark art, and probably run by Agliotti and Selebi.

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-22 09:57

      What has this got to do with SA?

      ivan.coetzee2 - 2011-12-22 10:12

      @Pointblank: Who said it had anything to do with SA? read statement again

  • Rev-Ida - 2011-12-22 09:38

    350 UK woman suing French firm after recent massive recall of Breast Implants. That's a neat way to get 350 k's of 99% Mother-of-Pearl | White Lady | Bolivian Rock into the country legally!

      Rev-Ida - 2011-12-22 10:57

      A friend asked about some Asimov material, which I was happy to oblige. One of which has a certain grace, bearing and poise on the current theme : #141 It Can't Hurt There was a young woman named Frances Who decided to better her chances By cleverly adding Appropriate padding To enlarge all her protuberances

  • Mashudu - 2011-12-22 09:55

  • Vic - 2011-12-22 15:02

    Maybe she thought they were the only suckers she could trust!!

  • comurray - 2011-12-22 15:22

    With these drug mules "where theres a will theres a way". Eventually all possible methods of bringing drugs into a country will be well known, but they will find some other method of smuggling drugs.

  • tschlep - 2012-03-29 09:04
