Honduran woman Paola Deyanira Sabillon, 22, was arrested at Bogota, Columbia's International Airport Friday, after it was discovered that she was carrying 3.3 lbs of liquid cocaine in her breast implants. She could now face a maximum of six years in prison.

"Police said the woman drew the attention of authorities at Bogota's International Airport when she began acting nervous in the security line," WPTV reports.

X-rays reportedly revealed a recent surgery, and Sabillon subsequently confessed that she was en-route to Spain to deliver the drug.

"The suspect was then taken to a medical clinic where doctors confirmed she was carrying 3.3 pounds of liquid cocaine inside two breast implants," WPTV further reports. The implants were removed, however, Sabillon remains hospitalized for an infection they caused.
