Canadian hid cocaine in fake pregnancy bump, Colombia police say
A Toronto woman has been arrested in Colombia after police say she feigned pregnancy to carry drugs.
Col. Esteban Arias says a 28-year-old woman was stopped while trying to board an Air Canada flight in Bogota after an inspector noted that her belly was unusually cold and hard.
Arias says police discovered a false belly made of latex taped to her body and they found two kilograms of cocaine.
Police say the woman is a social worker and arrived in Colombia on Aug. 6.
The Canadian Embassy in Bogota did not respond to requests for details.
Colombian officials say 874 foreigners are held in the country's lockups, most on drug charges.
