Fake Nuns arrested while trying to smuggle Cocaine Under Habits, Colombian Cops Say

Getting off the plane on Colombia's Caribbean island of San Andrés, three nuns looked nervous and the fabric of their habits didn't look right, so an airport cop decided to take a closer look.

According to police, they found packages of cocaine with an estimated value of about $35,000, taped to a leg of each woman, who were not really nuns. The women, 20, 32 and 37, donning the fake habits, tried to sneak through Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport in San Andres Sunday after arriving from Bogota, according to Colombia's national police.

The women face charges of trafficking, manufacturing and the bearing of narcotics, police said.
The drugs the women were smuggling would be distributed in more than 60 thousand doses, police said.
