Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport isn’t the busiest airport in Colombia. In fact, it’s not even in the top five. However, that doesn’t mean that aviation hub is sleepy. On the contrary, it witnessed one hell of a drug bust the other day!
According to CNN, three women were arrested at the airport for possession of cocaine. Adding a little spice to this story, the women were pretending to be nuns and hid the cocaine inside their habits!
The women – who were aged 20, 32 and 37 – were arriving from Bogota at the time, each carrying around two kilos of cocaine underneath their clothes.
Video footage of the suspected drug peddlers has even been doing the rounds on YouTube, with the women being led into police cars (no longer in their habits), acting nervous and crying.
The drugs the women were smuggling would be distributed in more than 60 thousand doses, police said. The trio face charges of trafficking, manufacturing and the bearing of narcotics.
