An unidentified lady has been arrested by the Argentinian Police for trying to smuggle 15 cannabis bricks, 4 kilos, through fake pregnancy bump.
Officers discovered she was faking her pregnancy after finding a man she was travelling with on a long-distance coach carrying a small amount of marijuana in a black bag.
According to Police, the pair were arrested at a police checkpoint in an area known as Valle de Uco near Mendoza close to Argentina’s border with Chile.
Argentina’s Minister for Security Patricia Bullrich tweeted photos of the bust, saying:
‘She made a belly out of paste, hid 15 cannabis bricks inside it and faked a pregnancy before trying to take it from Mendoza to Santa Cruz.
‘At a police control the pretend mum-to-be and her accomplice were arrested. This is how she tried to smuggle the drugs.’
The coach was heading to the Patagonian city of Santa Oliva.
