You may think it’s a sneaky big deal when you smugly sit down for your flight after smuggling aboard several Bloody Marys in your stomach. But that doesn’t compare to the Honduran woman who just tried to smuggle 3.3 pounds of liquid cocaine out of Colombia in her breast implants.
On Friday, at Bogotá’s El Dorado International Airport, Paola Deyanira Sabillon was headed to Spain when her nervous nature got the better of her in line and aroused the security team’s suspicions. Once X-rays revealed a recent surgical scar, the 22-year-old confessed to carrying an unknown substance in her chest.
Sabillon’s implants were later removed at a local hospital where she was also treated for an infection. Authorities believe the surgery took place at a clinic in Pereira, a city in western Columbia.
