Less than a month after a woman was caught smuggling $10,000 worth of cocaine in her vagina, another 24-year old was apprehended for a similar drug trafficking offense. This time, however, she let someone mutilate her body in order to do so.

The New York Postreports that a Colombian woman was arrested at an airport in Frankfurt, Germany after being caught with just over two pound of cocaine in her chest. Authorities were alerted when she complained of extreme pain. During a body search, they noticed fresh scars. The woman then admitted that she allowed another individual to insert 500-gram packages in her breasts during an amateur surgery.

"This is the first case in Germany in which drugs have been smuggled in this fashion," spokesman Hans-Juergen Schmidt told reporters. He added that incidents like this proved how drugs smugglers "are completely indifferent to human life and the life-threatening conditions of their drug carriers."

According to NYP, the drugs were valued at $220,000 and destined for Spain. That would have been a major payday for the unnamed woman who is currently facing jail time on drug trafficking charges.
