(Newser) – She might have gotten away with it if she weren't acting so nervous. Airport authorities in Colombia detained a suspicious-acting woman for questioning and soon learned that she was trying to smuggle liquid cocaine in her breast implants, reports Reuters. The 22-year-old confessed when an X-ray revealed recent surgery. Doctors removed the implants at a hospital in Bogota, and the woman remains under treatment there for an infection. Police say she was trying to smuggle about 3 pounds of the drug into Spain. She faces up to six years in prison.
