A 26-year-old Florida woman flying in from Jamaica was busted with six ounces of cocaine she’d hidden in her vagina, according to authorities.
KathyAnn Ferguson was likely working as a “drug mule, for lack of a better term,” a judge said at her court appearance Monday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
The Hollywood, Fla., woman arrived on a JetBlue flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica, to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Sunday afternoon and was pulled aside for a secondary search, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper.
At that point she admitted she had a package of coke stuffed inside her privates. After her arrest, Ferguson voluntarily pulled some 175 grams, or about six ounces, of the drug from her vagina, the Sun Sentinel reported.
She was briefly hospitalized before being booked into the Broward Main Jail on a felony cocaine trafficking charge.
Ferguson was released on $15,000 bond.
