Bronx Women Busted At JFK With Cocaine In ‘Diapers’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Talk about a loaded diaper.
Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale, of The Bronx, arrived at JFK Airport on a JetBlue flight from the Dominican Republic on Saturday.
Pena was selected for inspection by customs agents because a drug-sniffing dog alerted agents to something around Pena’s midsection, according to the court documents.
According to an affidavit, agents searched Pena’s luggage and said she appeared very nervous during the search.
An agent then requested a pat-down and Pena agreed. That is when the agent found a hard object around Pena’s stomach and buttocks.
A partial strip search revealed a girdle, resembling a diaper and a silver plastic wrapper.
