Agents working along the U.S. – Mexico border in San Diego recently arrested a man and a woman for attempting to smuggle illegal drugs inside the woman’s private parts.
Samantha Kurdilla and James Perry were walking in the pedestrian area of the San Ysidro Port of Entry on January 15 when a narcotics dog signaled an alert to its handler.
According to court documents filed in U.S. District Court, the dog alerted to Kurdilla’s “groin area.”
Prosecutors allege that Kurdilla had a condom with 100 grams of cocaine inside her vaginal cavity.
Perry who was walking “arm in arm” with Kurdilla at first told questioning agents “I’m not with her” the documents suggest.
However, he later admitted he had bought the drugs in Tijuana and told her how to conceal them to get them into the U.S. the documents show.
Prosecutors also claim Kurdilla had a saved text message on her cell phone at the time of her arrest that stated “I’m smuggling cocaine and heroin in my coochie.”
The two defendants are in U.S. custody and face a charge of unlawful importation of a controlled substance.
