2 women caught with cocaine hidden under their pants

Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale had just arrived at JFK aboard a JetBlue airliner from Santo Domingo when they were stopped by Customs and Border Protection officers.

A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers when it neared Pena, but the feds searched her luggage without finding any drugs,then the officers initiated a pat-down of the two women and discovered that each was wearing what authorities called a “diaper” filled with six and a half kilos of cocaine hidden under their pants.

Together, the women were charged with smuggling of cocaine.
Blassingale was held in custody by a Brooklyn federal judge, while Pena was released on $150,000 bond.
