The unidentified woman arrived at Barcelona's Prat airport on a flight from Bogota, Colombia, which is a known hotbed for drugs. The airport security became suspicious after the woman failed to give a clear reason for visiting the city. On conducting a body search, the authorities found bloodied bandages under the woman's breasts, which she tried to pass off claiming that the fresh implants may not have healed correctly.

However the authorities detected a 'white foreign material' in her breasts and took her straight to the operating table where they found that the implants contained almost 3 pounds or 1.4kg of pure cocaine. Confirming the incident, Spain's interior ministry said, "There, a medical team extracted a bag-shaped prosthesis from each breast containing a white pasty substance."
