Spanish National Police have arrested a 48-year-old woman who attempted to smuggle a kilo of cocaine under her chest and inside her genitals through Madrid's Barajas airport.

According to police sources, the woman was part of a three-person smuggling gang looking to bring a total of seven kilograms of cocaine into Spain.

Arriving in Barajas on a flight from the Brazilian city of Sao Paolo, the trio hid their stash in their luggage and inside their clothing.

Barajas border control police also intercepted two other people attempting to smuggle drugs into Spain from South America over the weekend .
