Two women were arrested after allegedly attempting to smuggle cocaine in homemade "diapers" through John F. Kennedy International Airport.

CBS New York reports that Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale were caught wearing the diapers after arriving on a flight from the Dominican Republic.

During a search of Pena, officers discovered she was wearing a black apparatus with a silver plastic wrapper containing cocaine around her midsection.

CBP officials discovered that Blassingale was wearing the same thing. Together, the two women were carrying 6.5 kilos of cocaine.

They were arrested and charged with smuggling.
