Pregnant woman caught with 3kg of cocaine
A young woman in Brazil probably thought she’d come up with a fool proof way of smuggling drugs when she masqueraded as a mum-to-be. Police wouldn’t search a pregnant woman, right? Wrong.
A footage shows, this 24-year-old brunette created an elaborate fake bump, which was stuck to her stomach with lengths of tape and then covered with clothes. Inside the “belly” was 3kg of cocaine. But cops were too smart to fall for that one and soon sussed her out. Military police reportedly boarded a bus on the Marechal Rondon highway near Birigui on Wednesday as part of a routine inspection and removed the woman before making her remove the smuggling device.
More photos after the cut
In the video an armed officer can be seen helping her cut the sticky tape as she struggles to detach the “bump”. She eventually removes the whole lot and hands it to the policeman. A large package can be seen on the inside of the tape. A man travelling with her was reportedly also arrested. It is not clear what punishment, if any, the pair received. This is not the first time a woman has tried smuggling drugs by pretending to be pregnant.
