Female Drug Mule Tries to Smuggle Cocaine Implanted in Her Breasts

A 28-year-old Panamanian woman, acting as a drug mule, underwent surgery to have two kilos of cocaine inserted into her breasts.

She was caught trying to smuggle the cocaine into Barcelona, Spain's El Prat airport earlier this month, reports the Daily Mail.

The woman was caught after getting off a flight from Colombia because airport police thought she was "acting funny."

When they searched the woman, they found bloody bandage covering her chest, which she said was from the operation.

The woman was rushed to a medical center, where doctors removed 1.8 kilos of cocaine, worth about $300K.

A police official told Vozpopuli.com: "She was in a very bad state when she arrived. She said she was not in any pain but the wounds looked very bad."
