Madrid- Drug smugglers constantly experiment with new ways to slip contraband past police.

Spanish authorities arrested a Panamanian woman who allegedly took that to a new extreme.

They say they found about 3 pounds of cocaine concealed in her breast implants.

Spain's Interior Ministry says border police at the Barcelona airport noticed fresh scars and blood-stained gauze on her chest with pale patches showing beneath her skin.

The woman claimed she recently had breast implant surgery. Still, police were suspicious and sent her to a hospital where the implants were removed and found to contain cocaine with a street value of about $100,000.

The woman arrived on a flight from Bogota, Colombia.
