A 24-year-old female U.S. citizen born in Jamaica who had just returned from a trip there was busted at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday for drug smuggling after U.S. Customs and Border Protection discovered an egg-shaped cocaine package in her vagina.
Shekira Thompson was smuggling a half-pound package of the drug.
The bust happened around 1 p.m. Sunday. Customs sensed something was up and Thompson was escorted to a private area where she admitted her “private” mistake.
The woman was arrested by Port Authority police. The cocaine package has been valued at $10,000.
She’s due back in court in February 22, according to the New York State unified court system records.
