Two Bronx women were busted Saturday at JFK Airport when a drug-sniffing customs dog alerted agents of their illicit undergarments.  Both Priscilla Pena and Michelle Blassingale were forced to empty their luggage first, but nothing was found.

It was during a pat-down that officers discovered “a hard object near Pena’s waist and buttocks.”  That hard object turned out to be a duct-tape diaper filled with cocaine.   Both women were wearing the cocaine girdles that collectively contained more than six kilos of coke.

Pena and Blassingale were headed to the Dominican Republic where, according to prosecutors, Blassingale was set to receive between $9,000 and $10,000.
