TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  TODAY'S MOST...Unbelievable attempt to smuggle drugs: Police in Spain arrested a woman for trying to smuggle cocaine inside her fake breasts.

The 43-year old woman had 3.7 pounds of cocaine stuffed inside her implants. The Venezuelan woman arrived at the airport in Madrid. She was on a flight from Colombia. 

Police say she was acting strangely as she passed through customs. Police didn't find anything in her luggage, but when female officers frisked her they noticed her breasts were irregular.

At that moment, police told a press agency in Spain the suspect started to act nervously and "confessed that she was carrying implants with cocaine inside."

Police then took the woman to the hospital and the implants were removed.
