A Jamaican national has been arrested for smuggling more than three pounds of cocaine inside a Chanel pocketbook and platform shoes in her luggage, authorities said Monday.
Janisha Atkins, 33, was selected for an examination by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers Sept. 19 after she arrived at New York’s Kennedy Airport aboard a JetBlue flight from Montego Bay.
Inside her pink and purple suitcase, officers noticed a strong odor coming from her pocketbook and two pairs of platform shoes, which also seemed unusually heavy, according to the complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.
The lining of the pocketbook and the heels of the shoes were probed further and officers discovered white powder inside, the feds said.
Atkins admitted that she knew there was drugs in the items and was charged with importation of a controlled substance.
