Can You Guess What This Woman Was Going To Do With The $70,000 That Cops Found Hiding In Her Stomach?



Can you guess? I’ll give you a very subtle hint by saying that she was caught in the Dominican Republic. No? Okay, it begins with “D” and ends with “RUGS.”

Okay no more hints, I hope you’ve guessed it by now!

Dominican Republic officials say they have arrested a woman who was carrying more than $70,000 in her stomach and $69,000 hidden inside her suitcase.

The spokesman for the National Drug Control Agency says the money in the woman’s stomach was divided up among 16 capsules and the cash is likely tied to drug trafficking.

Spokesman Dario Medrano said Friday that the 40-year-old woman was arrested at the airport in the popular tourist district of Punta Cana after arriving on a flight from Brussels. Her name has not been released.

Dominican authorities say this is the first time they have arrested someone who was smuggling money in their stomach.

Can you imagine either pooping out or throwing up $70,000? That’s some intense dedication right there…or a nice healthy fear of being murdered by some drug cartel somewhere.
