An unidentified Guatemalan woman has been arrested in Panama for attempting to smuggle unclaimed money inside her stomach.
The 44-year-old was arrested at Panama’s Tocumen airport in Panama City, Panama. She was trying to enter the country with the cash inside her. She was flagged by airport security and found to be carrying money bundles that totaled $31,200. Authorities claim her suspicious behavior trigged the extensive body search.
Panamanian authorities forced the woman to pass the bundles through her digestive system to retrieve the unclaimed currency.
