Two women were arrested at two separate airports in Colombia for attempting to smuggle cocaine in their hair extensions, the country’s Ministry of Defense said.
They were headed to Madrid, Spain, and were stopped after going through security when a body scan showed foreign objects were stashed in their hair, Col Carlos Alberto Potes said.
The drugs were hidden in small round black tubes and were strapped to the suspects scalps underneath the extensions, images show.
The South American country’s authorities proudly displayed the contraband they recovered alongside the hair extensions and the suspects in a series of images.
Il all, about 2 kilos of the powdery white drug were recovered.
