A woman was busted by U.S. Customs Agents at JFK Airport in New York City trying to smuggle a half a pound of cocaine stuffed up her vagina.

Authorities said 24-year-old Shekira Thompson, who is a U.S. citizen, arrived on a flight from Jamaica to JFK on Sunday and immediately flagged for secondary screening in a separate room after customs agents noticed the woman sweating profusely.

During the inspection Thompson admitted she was smuggling drugs and produced discovered a large oval shaped ball containing a HALF pound of cocaine or 255 grams in an oval shaped ball wrapped in brown tape worth an estimated street value of $10 thousand.

Thompson, who is a resident of Springfield Gardens, Queens was turned over to Port Authority Police and charged with drug-trafficking.

“The seizure is another example of our CBP officers being ever vigilant in protecting the United States from the distribution of these illicit drugs,” Robert E. Perez, Director of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s New York Field Operations said after the bust.

Thompson, who was arraigned in Queens criminal court on Monday, is currently held in Rikers Island jail on $100,000 bond.
