FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (WFLA) – A woman was taken into custody after officers found several pounds of cocaine she was trying to hide in her bra, officials said.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations officers conducted an inspection of a female passenger at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Aug. 2. After noticing abnormalities during the inspection, officers discovered 2.7 pounds of white powdery substance in the woman’s bra. The substance tested positive for cocaine.

“This is another excellent example of our CBP officers’ expertise in preventing dangerous drugs from entering the United States,” said Fort Lauderdale International Airport Port Director Jorge Roig. “CBP officers demonstrate vigilance, integrity and professionalism on a daily basis.”
