Say What Now? Woman Busted at JFK Airport for Trying to Smuggle 27 lbs. of Cocaine in Her Wheelchair [Photos]

A woman was arrested at JFK airport earlier this week after customs agents and a search dog found 6 bricks of cocaine in the cushion of her wheelchair.

The bricks were worth nearly $500,000 and weighed 27 pounds.

via TMZ:

Yoncela Stanley arrived at the JFK Airport Sunday from St. Lucia, and allegedly had the load of blow tucked under and behind her in the motorized chair. The K9 wasn’t fooled though, and alerted Customs and Border Protection Officers who noticed the back seat cushion looked “unusual.”

6 bricks and 2 clear bags of coke — tipping the scales at 27 lbs. and worth $468,000 — would definitely be unusual. Stanley was booked for importation of a controlled substance.

The K9 got a big bag of legal treats, we’re guessing, for the bust.

Yikes. That’s a LOT of cocaine.
