What is wrong with people?! A 24-year-old woman was arrested when US Customs officials caught her with a half-pound of cocaine… hidden in her vagina! You have got to be kidding me!
According to the US Customs and Border Protection, Shekira Thompson, a US citizen, arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens from Kingston, Jamaica, on February 21 and presented herself for a security inspection.
Border agents escorted the traveler to a private search room, where she reportedly confessed to ‘vaginally inserting a foreign object’.
The contraband, an oblong bundle tightly wrapped in plastic containing a powdery substance, was then removed from Thompson’s bathing suit area.
The contents of the vaginal insert tested positive for cocaine, according to federal officials.
In its press release Friday, Customs and Border Protection said the half-pound of cocaine has an estimated street value of $10,000.
She is being held on Rikers Island on $100,000 bail, reported the New York Daily News. Her next court appearance is scheduled for March 9.
That’s just crazy! She had $10,000 worth of cocaine hidden in her VAGINA! And here I thought Super plus absorbent tampons were uncomfortable! I would’ve hated to be the one on shift that night!
