Police on the Colombian Caribbean island of San Andres arrested three fake nuns carrying $35 thousand worth of cocaine under their clothes.

The three suspects, Colombians aged 20, 32 and 37 were arrested at the airport of San Andres as they were trying to enter the island.

All three had hidden two kilos of cocaine under their religious habit.

“They weren’t really religious, they weren’t nuns. On the contrary, they were taking advantage of this situation,” San Andres police commissioner Jorge Gomez told RCN TV.

According to the police official, the drugs — 60,000 doses — had a street value of $35,470 and was likely to be distributed locally.

The fake nuns were taken to the local prison to await trial.
