Feds: Smuggler Had Half A Pound Of Cocaine Stashed In Her Vagina
A woman traveling from Jamaica to New York was arrested Sunday after federal agents discovered that she was smuggling half a pound of cocaine in her vagina.
Shekira Thompson, a 21-year-old U.S. citizen, flew from Kingston to John F. Kennedy International Airport, where during questioning from Customs and Border Protection officers she reportedly “admitted to vaginally inserting a foreign body.”
That foreign body, seen above, was a “vaginal insert” that weighed eight ounces and was filled with cocaine, according to federal officials who estimated the drug’s street value at $10,000.
Charged with felony narcotics possession, Thompson is locked up in lieu of $50,000 bail. The accused smuggler, now being held on Rikers Island, is next due in court on March 9.
