Video: Watch the moment customs officials arrest a woman 'trying to smuggle cocaine in a fake PREGNANT BELLY'

Police found two sealed bags stashed inside the latex belly, which contained 2kg (5lb) of cocaine

 
A woman has been arrested after allegedly trying to smuggle drugs in a fake PREGNANT BELLY.
Tabitha Leah Ritchie was trying to board a flight from Colombia to Canada when she was apparently asked by police how far along she was in her pregnancy.
The 28-year-old reacted aggressively, saying she was seven months pregnant, which aroused the suspicion of officials who went on to search her.
"She didn't like the question, which made the official suspicious," said deputy director of Colombia's police anti-narcotics section, Colonel Esteban Arias Melo.
"Instinctively, she then very delicately touched the lady's belly, realising it was too hard and extremely cold."
Police found two sealed bags stashed inside the latex belly, which contained 2kg (5lb) of cocaine.
The Canadian national had entered Colombia at the beginning of August, and was identified as a social worker.
She was arrested at Bogota's International Airport while trying to board a flight to Toronto.
Ritchie will be charged with drug trafficking, possession and production and could be sentenced to between five and eight years in prison.
The drugs would have had a street value price of around $60,000 (£94,000), Colombian police said.
