Bogota: Pregnant with cocaine! A 28-year old woman from Canada was held at Bogota airport for trying to smuggle cocaine which she hid within a fake baby bump, reports said Thursday.

The Canadian national was arrested for having stuffed cocaine in a fake latex belly at Bogota International Airport while she was about to board a flight to Toronto, reported the BBC.

The woman, seemingly pregnant caught a policewoman's attention and responded aggressively when asked how long she had been pregnant.

This added to the suspicion and led the security official to search her.

The suspect's search resulted in recovery of 2 Kg of cocaine, packed in two sealed bags within her fake bump.

"[The Canadian] didn't like the question, which made the official suspicious. Instinctively, she then very delicately touched the lady's belly, realising it was too hard and extremely cold," the BBC quoted said a top official from Colombia's anti-narcotic department.

According to the Colombian police, the cost of drug recovered would be around $60,000.
