Two women who arrived at John Fitzgerald Kennedy (“JFK”) airport were arrested, charged and jailed for smuggling cocaine into the United States.
After speculating that two women, identified as Makeeba Graham and Kiana Howell, were sporting hair styles that looked unusually tall and out of place, officials decided to take a much closer look.
Their instincts did not deceive them.
In fact, upon a closer look, authorities located packages of cocaine were in fact sewn into the hair weaves of the two women.
According to the women who are now facing drug-smuggling charges, they were not aware that their hair weaves contained drugs.
The women, who were arriving from the South American country Guyana, claimed that their boyfriends requested that they smuggle the cocaine into the United States, but they refused.
Meanwhile, the women are now facing felony drug smuggling charges in a Federal court in Brooklyn, New York.
