PARAMARIBO, Suriname (CMC) — Police Monday confirmed they arrested a 24-year-old woman after a “cocaine ball” had been found in her vagina as she was preparing to board a flight to Amsterdam.

Police said the cocaine weighed 2.317 grams and was discovered after members of the Anti-Narcotics Brigade carried out the search on Sunday.

The police said that the woman, a Surinamese national, has since been taken into custody and will appear in court later this week.

Police have nabbed several women in recent months trying to use this method to smuggle cocaine. The police website lists at least one such arrest monthly.
