U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Jamaican woman at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for smuggling cocaine in her bra.

Officials say a total of 2.7 pounds of cocaine was seized and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations.

"This is another excellent example of our CBP officers' expertise in preventing dangerous drugs from entering the United States," said Fort Lauderdale International Airport Port Director Jorge Roig. "CBP officers demonstrate vigilance, integrity and professionalism on a daily basis."

The smuggling attempted happened on August 2.
