NEWS / CBP Intercepts Woman with Cocaine Concealed in Brassiere at BWI


Baltimore - Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended a traveler who was attempting to smuggle cocaine in her brassiere on a flight from Jamaica, officials announced today.

Sophia Williams, 35, of Washington, D.C., was arrested at about 1:45 a.m. today after Customs and Border Protection officers discovered about 2 pounds, 9 ounces of cocaine stuffed inside her bra late Monday night.

The cocaine, divided into two packages, was designed to blend in with her bra material.

“Narcotics smugglers will go to great lengths to conceal their dangerous drugs, and this is another unique concealment method,” said James Swanson, CBP port director for the Port of Baltimore. “Unfortunately for her, it wasn’t so unique that it fooled our highly trained officers even for a second.”

Williams arrived to Baltimore Washington International Airport from Montego Bay, Jamaica at about 11 p.m. on Monday.

Williams and the cocaine were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
