A woman returning to the US from Jamaica was on Sunday arrested at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport in Florida, after she allegedly attempted to smuggle cocaine in her vagina.
In custody is 26-year-old Kathy-Ann Ferguson of a Hollywood address in the US.
Ferguson flew from Montego Bay about 4:15 pm and was allegedly transporting 172 grams of the drug when she was arrested.
Further reports were that she was subjected to a security search during which she admitted to carrying the drug. She reportedly removed the drug from her vagina herself after which she received medical attention.
She was subsequently booked into the Broward County Main Jail.
She has since been released on US$15,000 bond.
