Published: Thursday January 31, 2013 | 10:52 am Comments 0

Two women have been caught attempting to smuggle six and a half kilos of cocaine in their pants.

Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale, from the Bronx, were returning to New York's JFK airport from the Dominican Republic when they were stopped by Customs and Border Protection officers alerted by the reaction of drug-sniffing dogs.

Checking their luggage, but finding no trace of drugs, the officers began a pat-down of the two women and discovered the cocaine-filled 'diapers' around the ladies hind quarters.

According to the New York Post, Blassingale is being held in jail by a Brooklyn federal judge and Pena has been released on a $150,000 bail bond.
