Bogota – Colombia police said on Monday that a Honduran woman, carrying 1.5 kg of liquid cocaine in her breast implants, was arrested at the Colombian airport in Bogota.
Airport police, Col. Diego Rosero-Paola, said 22 year-old Deyanira Sabillon, was attempting to travel to Spain, when her apparent nervousness aroused suspicion in the security line.
He said X-rays revealed a recent surgery on Sabillon’s breasts.
Rosero-Paola said during interrogation she confessed that an unknown substance had been implanted in her breast which she was meant to take to Barcelona.
The officer said a preliminary investigation showed that the surgery took place at a clandestine clinic, in the city of Pereira, in western Colombia.
Rosero-Paola sad the implants were removed at a Bogota hospital where Sabillon was also being treated for an infection.
