Colombian anti-narcotics security officials continue to foil the most audacious drug trafficking attempts at some of the nation’s busiest airports and shipping ports.

Security Command at the El Dorado International Airport in Bogota, Colombia, recently busted a female passenger trying to smuggle almost 9 kilos of cocaine on a flight to Paris, divided into 16 sealed packages made to look like books and notebooks.

Footage of the incident was captured on for Nat Geo’s “Airport Alert” documentary series.

The woman acted so suspiciously that the narcotics agents decide to interrogate her and quickly generated more suspicions by the woman’s nervous nature and answers.

Officers decided to request a body scan search, which came up empty.

However, a drug detection K-9 alerted agents to the possible presence of narcotics inside her suitcase.

A detailed inspection of her belongings uncovered 15 packages wrapped in plastic made to look like notebooks containing a white powdery substance, which subsequently tested positive for cocaine.

Ranked as one of the 23 best airports in the world, El Dorado is one of the biggest and most dynamic air terminals in Latin America, servicing 25 million passengers and handling 200,000 tons of cargo every year.
