Federal agents snag a $29,000 bra at U.S. border- not exactly Victoria Secret

Normally a $29,000 bra conjures up thoughts of scantily-clad women sashaying down a rose-pedal runway, however, in San Diego the padded bra contained drugs.

Federal agents at the San Ysidro Port of Entry snagged a 22-year-old Mexican female who tried to enter the U.S. with nearly a pound-and-a-half of methamphetamine lined inside her bra.

The young women tried to enter the country through the pedestrian entrance during the busy 5 p.m. rush hour.

Agents busted the would-be drug smuggler when they noticed “discrepancies under the woman’s clothing near her chest,” according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Agents.

CBP Officers sent the young women to a secondary inspection station where agents found the drugs, according to CBP.
