A 33-year-old Spanish model was arrested at the Rome airport for attempting to smuggle 2.5 kg cocaine in prosthetic breasts.

The model -- who arrived on a flight from San Paolo, Brazil, and identified by authorities only as M.F.M. -- was arrested Wednesday after women detectives at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport found crystal white powder hidden in her fake breasts and bottom.

The prominent size of the suspect's chest and posterior drew the attention of airport customs agents leading to the search, officials said.
