So here’s the deal (pun, intended): Two Bronx neighbours, Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale, were returning from the Dominican Republic. They had just arrived at JFK aboard a JetBlue airliner from Santo Domingo when they were stopped by Customs and Border Protection officers.
Apparently, a drug-sniffing dog alerted officers when it neared Priscilla, but the feds search her luggage without finding any drugs. But upon a conducting a body search (a pat-down and then a strip-search), the feds caught the women wearing a “diaper” filled with cocaine and rigged like a girdle around their hind quarters.
Together, both Priscilla and Michelle were charged with smuggling approximately 6 ½ kilos of cocaine. According to the New York Post, Michelle was held in custody in Brooklyn while Priscilla was released on a USD150,000 bond.
Not trying to make a joke out of the situation or anything like that (drug smuggling is a serious offence) but Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps” comes to mind:
