She had 1.5 kilograms of cocaine in these breast implants. As a result, 22-year-old Paola Deyanira Sabillon from Honduras faces up to six years in prison.
“In the last few hours, the Colombian National Police have captured a young Honduran woman of 22 years old at El Dorado International Airport. The woman arrived 10 days ago in the country and was transferred to the city of Pereira where surgery was completed on her and 1,500 grams of liquid cocaine was found inside her.”
She was trying to travel to Spain when police stopped her. It’s thought liquid cocaine was inserted in her implants in the Colombian city of Pereira. Due to an infection caused by the implant, she remains in hospital.
