The latest in drug trafficking fashion: cocaine implants

by Adriaan Alsema August 6, 2019

Police in Colombia’s capital Bogota said Monday they have discovered that drug traffickers are employing plastic surgeons for liquid cocaine implants.

According to the police, 780 grams of liquid cocaine implants were found inside the thighs of a 42-year- old woman traveling through Bogota from Cali, the country’s plastic surgery capital, to Madrid.

Lieutenant Wilson Silva said the liquid cocaine with an alleged value of $36,000 had been implanted “between the flesh and the muscle” of the woman’s thighs.

This form of trafficking cocaine is entirely new to the police.

“Drug mules” have long swallow carefully wrapped balls of cocaine to traffic the drugs in their stomach, but this is the first time police discovers that plastic surgeons are now involved.
