Detectives from the Narcotics Division seized approximately 2.3 pounds of cocaine at the Normal Manley International Airport in Kingston on Wednesday.
Narcotics operatives report that about 6:40 p.m. a port security worker searched a female at security checkpoint, and discovered packages of cocaine in her bra and between her legs. She was arrested and taken to the Narcotics Headquarters where she is being processed.
The woman is expected to be charged with possession of cocaine, dealing in cocaine, and taking preparatory steps to export cocaine.
The drug has an estimated street value of $1.2 million.
