Shekira Thompson a U.S citizen has run out of luck after the 24 year old woman was arrested at Kennedy Airport trying to smuggle $10 000 worth of cocaine into the city by hiding it in her vagina.
Slight pause. My heart can barely imagine the probing possibilities.
Authorities tell the woman was caught with half a pound of the good shit inserted into her private area on Sunday after returning from a trip to her native Jamaica.
A report via the nydailynews tells of Shekira Thompson’s arrest coming during a routine screening at about 1pm (‘Oh no, not me, this can’t be happening to me…’) after officials noticed the woman sweating profusely.
‘There must be a way to fake this. They’re never going to catch me. God I’m a bundle of a million nerve knots. Is that my reflection gushing in the custom official’s eyeballs?’
Brought to a private search room, the Springfield Gardens, Queens resident capitulated, admitted to hiding drugs when probed, despite testing negative when passing through a body X-ray.
It’s at this point the woman produced an oval shaped ball, wrapped in brown duct tape, containing about 255.5 grams of the good shit.
‘There I feel better. Now that I know I am destined for jail. The anticipation of getting caught was more lethal than what now awaits me.’
Offered Robert E. Perez, Director of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s New York Field Operations, who hailed the bust:
‘This seizure is just another example of our CBP officers being ever vigilant in protecting the United States from the distribution of these illicit drugs.’
Of question is how the woman came to be a drug mule and how she came to lose her nerve. While others have wondered how many other drug mules from the region continue to enter the US uninhibited and without notice?
Turned over to the Port Authority Police Department, Shekira Thompson was arraigned on Monday in Queens Criminal Court on a drug possession charge.
‘At last I feel better. Some you win, some you lose and some you keep losing.’
Thompson remains held on Rikers Island in lieu of $100,000 bond.
