A woman was on Sunday caught at JFK Airport attempting to smuggle 27 pounds of cocaine in the cushion of her motorised wheelchair.
Yoncela Stanley arrived at the JFK Airport from St. Lucia with the cocaine said to be worth about $468,000 tucked under and behind her in the wheelchair.
She was discovered after a drug-sniffing K9 sniffed out the drug and alerted Customs and Border Protection Officers. Taking a closer look, it was noticed that cushion of the wheelchair seat looked unusual so they checked and found 6 bricks and 2 clear bags of coke.
Stanley, 33, has now been arrested for importation of a controlled substance.
