|Nigerian Woman Delivers 4 Pounds, 12 Ounces Of Heroin Pellets at Dulles Airport by lacidi: 10:19am On Mar 22, 2012|
A woman from Nigeria passed these pellets of heroin, federal authorities allege.
A record was set at Dulles Airport over the weekend: the most heroin ever recovered there from a human stomach.
Please don't try this one at home. (Or at the airport. Definitely not at the airport.)
On Saturday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Nigerian woman who'd allegedly ingested 180 thumb-sized pellets of heroin.
That amounts to 4 pounds, 12 ounces.
Bola Adebisi, 52, arrived at Dulles from Nigeria on Wednesday, March 14. During a secondary inspection, Adebisi said she was going to stay with her brother, but was unable to provide her brother’s address, phone number or physical description, authorities said.
During a routine patdown, a female CBP officer noticed that Adebisi’s stomach was abnormally rigid, and an X-ray at a local hospital discovered some hidden cargo, authorities said.
By the time an affidavit was submitted for criminal charges, Adebisi had passed a number of pellets that had a combined weight exceeding 100 grams, authorities said. She remained in the hospital until Saturday night, when X-rays confirmed she'd passed them all.
Adebisi will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.
"The amount of pellets and heroin this woman ingested is incredible, a serious health risk, and very troubling if these numbers become the new normal," said Christopher Hess, CBP Port Director for the Port of Washington, D.C.
The previous largest "internal pellet seizure" at Dulles was March 30, 2011, according to CBP. A 46-year-old Nigerian man was arrested after expelling 100 pellets of heroin with a combined weight of a little more than four pounds.
