Woman with drugs in underwear arrested in N Sumatra

The Kuala Namu Customs and Excise Office in North Sumatra has arrested a woman who was attempting to smuggle 212.67 grams of crystal methamphetamine in her underpants.

The 31-year-old woman, who went by the initials UA, was arrested on Aug. 4, the office's head, Zaky Firmansyah said, as quoted by tribunnews.com on Friday.

"She was arrested because the way she was walking was different," Zaky said.

The Bogor resident arrived at Kuala Namu Airport after flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she allegedly received the drugs from a Nigerian, Zaky added.

An official from the North Sumatra customs and excise directorate general, Iyan Rubianto, said that the drugs were found in two packets inside AU's underpants.

"One pack contained 111.5 grams of methamphetamine and the other contained 101.11 grams," Iyan said.

Iyan said that the case would be handed over to the North Sumatra National Narcotics Agency for further investigation.
