A Jamaican woman was arrested at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport after almost three pounds of cocaine were found to be stashed in her bra.
United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers found the cocaine inside the unnamed woman’s bra after noticing something suspicious during an inspection.
The drugs weighed 2.7 pounds.
“This is another excellent example of our CBP officers’ expertise in preventing dangerous drugs from entering the United States,” said Fort Lauderdale International Airport port director Jorge Roig.
The mission of the CBP is to carry out anti-terrorism procedures as well as border-related duties, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration and trade laws, and protecting the nation’s food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases.
