SEE IT! Women Hiding Cocaine In Vaginas FAIL at Airports
by Toshiba Reynolds

You are a woman and you want to smuggle some drugs or something. What do you do? You hide the contraband in your vagina. Customs officers in New York said a woman returning from a trip to Jamaica was concealing half a pound of cocaine in her vagina.

Shekira Thompson was arrested Sunday at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

According to a release by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officers stopped Thompson, no address reported, after arriving at JFK International Airport on a flight from Kingston, Jamaica.

The release goes on to say that Customs Officers escorted the woman into a private search room, where after further questioning, she cop to "inserting a foreign body."

The bullet insert was extracted and the contents tested positive for cocaine, the news release said. Customs says that the nearly 8 ounces of cocaine has an estimated street value of $10K.

"This seizure is just another example of our CBP officers being ever-vigilant in protecting the United States from the distribution of these illicit drugs," said Robert E. Perez, director of customs' New York Field Operations.

Thompson was subsequently handed over to Port Authority Police Officers. She now faces state narcotics smuggling charges in New York not to mention the humiliation she underwent for such a poor decision.

This would sound like a very rare violation or attempted violation right? Not so.

A Florida woman was arrested at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport last year after authorities found a “package” of cocaine in her vagina.

According to NBC Miami, 26-year-old KathyAnn Ferguson flew from Jamaica to South Florida, where she admitted during a secondary search that she “had a ‘package’ inserted in her vagina.”

The Hollywood, Florida, native removed it herself, and the substance tested positive for cocaine.

Another woman smuggled £47,000 worth of cocaine in her vagina and was caught at Gatwick Airport in 2014.

And in a twist.

Back in August, a woman who tried to enter Colombia with $38,500 in cash hidden inside her vagina was arrested by police at the capital’s El Dorado airport. The unnamed 39-year-old, who was hiding the money in latex-covered capsules in her vagina, is now receiving medical treatment.
