|Woman wearing cocaine diaper|
(Scroll down for video) Two women were arrested and charged after being caught wearing cocaine diapers at JFK Airport, according to police reports in New York.
Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale, who live in the Bronx, arrived at JFK Airport on a JetBlue flight from the Dominican Republic on Saturday.
Pena was selected for inspection by customs agents because a drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to something around Pena’s waist, according to court documents.
According to an affidavit, officers searched the luggage of Pena and said she looked very nervous during the search.
An agent then requested a search and Pena agreed. That's when the officer found a hard object
around Pena’s stomach and behind.
A partial strip search revealed a girdle, like a diaper and plastic silver wrap. It contained cocaine, officials said.
Pena was placed under arrest. Pena told agents that she was traveling with Blassingale, who had also been searched and found that she also had cocaine in a diaper.
In total, the two women carried almost seven kilos of cocaine.
Blassingale remained in custody in Brooklyn, and Pena was released on bail of $150,000.
