Two drug mules arrested at Las Americas Airport
A 17-year old girl and a 28-year old woman, both US citizens, have been arrested at Las Americas International Airport as they attempted to smuggle 158 packets of a substance believed to be cocaine or heroin on a flight to New York City. The minor was found to have 69 packs adhered to her legs, 8 in a plastic bag and another 19 in her vagina. The adult had 69 packs: 40 in her anus, 15 in a preservative within her vagina and seven others in her stomach. The National Forensic Sciences Institute (INACIF) is analyzing the contents. The two suspects were arrested when attempting to board JetBlue flights 310 and 810 to New York City. The visible substances were retained at the airport, and the others would be expelled from the suspects’ body cavities at the Armed Forces Central Hospital, as reported by the National Drug Control Agency (DNCD).
