A 24-year-old woman was trying to pass through customs at an airport in Frankfurt, Germany, when agents noticed something wasn’t quite right about the lone female traveler.
She was selected to be searched, which is when airport officials found several fresh operation scars and became increasingly suspicious.
The woman was also complaining of being in severe pain.
Something clearly was not right.
Apparently in such horrific pain that she no longer cared about giving herself up, the woman revealed that she was a drug mule who had just undergone surgery and was carrying breast implants full of cocaine.
According to Mad World News, the woman was immediately taken into custody and transferred to a local hospital where doctors removed two 500-gram lumps of cocaine wrapped in plastic from inside her chest.
The drugs were estimated to have a street value of just under $300,000.
“This is the first case in Germany in which drugs have been smuggled in this fashion,” explained spokesman Hans-Juergen Schmidt.
While customs agents were stunned to find a woman with cocaine-filled breasts in the first place, they were in for another shock when they discovered the “amateurish” fashion of the surgery the lady underwent.
Drug smugglers “are completely indifferent to human life and the life-threatening conditions of their drug carrier,” remarked Schmidt.
As it turns out, the woman was from Columbia and is a mother-of-three.
She is currently behind bars facing drug trafficking charges.
