Two women were caught trying to smuggle drugs into the United States at JFK airport in New York.

Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale had just arrived at JFK from Santo Domingo when they were stopped by Customs and Border Protection officers. A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers when it got close to Pena.

Officers didn’t find any drugs in their luggage but did find Pena and Blassingale wearing a diaper loaded with drugs during a pat-down. The homemade diapers made out of duct tape concealed six and a half kilos of cocaine, the NY Post reports.
