Airport authorities in Spain have arrested a woman after finding that she tried to smuggle in 3 pounds of cocaine into the country by concealing them in her breast implants.
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.

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."
