It's one thing to pretend to be a pregnant lady in order to smuggle drugs, it's another to stash the drugs inside your lady parts! But that's what a Nigerian woman did at the JFK airport. Afolake Awoyemi had been detained after flying in from France.
When asked by a Border Protection inspector, Awoyemi said she was three months pregnant. Nevertheless, Customs officers opted for a pat-down search. That's when they felt a bulge in Awoyemi's groin area. NY Daily writes:
