Cocaine Bust Lands Curvy Model in Italian Jail

ROME -- A Spanish model's plan to smuggle cocaine into Italy concealed in her prosthetic breasts and buttocks backfired Wednesday when her extra curvy figure drew the wrong kind of attention from ogling customs officials.

The 33 year old deliberately wore tight-fitting clothes when she arrived on a flight at Rome's Fiumicino airport from Sao Paulo in Brazil, hoping to throw the full-blooded Italian security staff off the scent.

Unfortunately her extra-large bosom and derriere managed to attract the glances of airport customs agents, Italian news agency ANSA reported, but not for the reasons she had hoped. She also flubbed her answers to questions about the reasons for her trip.

Two female investigators conducted a strip search and found the white powder stashed inside her unusual underwear. She was arrested for attempting to smuggle around 5.5 pounds of cocaine.
