According to the Colombian Ministry of Defense, two ladies were detained in Colombia on Thursday for trying to smuggle cocaine in their hair extensions.
The women were apprehended at two different airports in the South American nation using the extensions to fashion elaborate, poofy hairstyles, according to the agency.
They were detained after passing through security because a body scan revealed they had foreign objects hidden in their hair while traveling to Madrid, Spain, according to Col. Carlos Alberto Potes.
Images reveal that the pills were tied to the suspects’ scalps beneath the extensions and concealed inside tiny, round, black tubes.
In a series of pictures, Colombian authorities proudly showed the contraband they seized with the defendants and the hair extensions.
A total of 2 kilos of the white powdery drug were found.
