Two Bronx natives who were on their way back from the Dominican Republic were busted at JFK International Airport on Saturday wearing "diapers" made up of 6.5 kilos of cocaine and duct tape. A drug-sniffing dog noticed the cocaine, but Customs agents found nothing in Michelle Blassingale and Priscilla Pena's luggage. However, Pena looked shook during questioning and an officer noticed something unusually large in her nether regions during a pat-down.
Both women agreed to a strip search, and were found to be wearing black girdles wrapped in duct tape. Inside were pellets of cocaine. Though Pena was released on $150,000 bond, Blassingale is still in custody. She reportedly told prosecutors that she was promised between $9,000 and $10,000 for smuggling the coke into the country.
Blassingale also claims that the cocaine was given to them by "an unknown male in the Dominican Republic." You probably never thought you'd see the day when you found something more fraudulent than Booty Pop! panites, did you?
Also, a woman was busted at JFK earlier this month while trying to smuggle two pounds of cocaine in her bra and sneakers. How long before we see the complete cocaine lingerie set? Paging Victoria's Secret...
