Woman Returning From Jamaica Nabbed With Coke

CaribWorldNews, BALTIMORE, MD, Weds. Aug. 26, 2009: A 35-year-old woman returning from Jamaica has been nabbed with cocaine in her bra.

Sophia Williams, 35, of Washington, D.C., was arrested at about 1:45 a.m. Tuesday after Customs and Border Protection officers discovered about 2 pounds, 9 ounces of cocaine stuffed inside her bra late Monday night.

The cocaine, divided into two packages, was designed to blend in with her bra material, a U.S. CBP statement said.  Williams arrived at Baltimore Washington International Airport from Montego Bay, Jamaica at about 11 p.m. on Monday.  Williams and the cocaine were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

`Narcotics smugglers will go to great lengths to conceal their dangerous drugs, and this is another unique concealment method,` said James Swanson, CBP port director  for the Port of Baltimore.

`Unfortunately for her, it wasn`t so unique that it fooled our highly trained officers even for a second.`
