Three fake nuns were arrested in Colombia with six
kilograms of cocaine in their possession, Colombian media reported
Police became suspicious of the three women at the airport on the Caribbean island of San Andres because they were wearing robes of three different orders and seemed nervous and loud, the daily El Heraldo reported.
The fake nuns, aged 20, 32 and 37, flew to the tourist island from Bogota on Monday with 2 kilogrammes of cocaine each, local police charged in a statement. The women told a judge that they resorted to drug trafficking because they needed money.
The drugs had an estimated market value of 35,000 dollars.
