BOGOTA, COLOMBIA: What do you get when you cross three women, three bad habits and 2 kilos of cocaine? Fake nuns getting arrested for drug trafficking. Three women wearing fake habits masquerading as nuns were nabbed after trying to sneak through Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport in San Andres concealing cocaine. Police say the women boarded a flight in Bogota, Colombia with more than four pounds (2 kilos) of cocaine strapped to their legs. When they arrived on the island of San Andres, they appeared nervous, but the real give away: the fabric of the habits just didn’t look right, said the police captain.
The three ungodly women were arrested and jailed for trafficking cocaine.
