Authorities say they thwarted a hair-raising attempt at concealing drugs by two women in Colombia.
They say two women tried the same stunt at two different airports in the country and were both nabbed. Police say when both women went through airport security, scanners showed foreign objects hidden in their big hairstyles.
Authorities say the women were detained and submitted to voluntary scanning where the images showed irregularities. Footage from the Colombian police showed an airport officer removing the tubes from the hair extensions and opening one of them to reveal and test its content.
