HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A woman flying back from the Caribbean told workers at an airport security check that she was hiding cocaine inside her vagina, police say.

The Sun Sentinel reports that KathyAnn Ferguson was arrested for cocaine trafficking after making the admission. The 26-year-old had just stepped off a JetBlue flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica, Sunday when she informed a Customs and Border Protection officer at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that she had a package inside her vagina.

Once in custody she removed the package, which contained 175 grams of cocaine.

Ferguson was booked into the Broward Main Jail but was released on a $15,000 bond.

In June, a 47-year-old woman who was stopped for a window tint violation in Wabasso, Fla., also admitted to police she had tinfoil-wrapped crack cocaine hidden inside her vagina. In May, a woman being booked into a South Florida jail was caught with marijuana stashed in the same area.
