Woman Arrested at Logan Smuggling Cocaine in Diaper
At approximately 7:25 a.m. KAREN MORLA RAMOS, 22, disembarked from arriving JetBlue flight 893. While being questioned at a Customs and Border Protection checkpoint, RAMOS provided conflicting answers about her travel, prompting officers to conduct a pat down search.
The pat down revealed a powdery substance concealed in a diaper-like garment RAMOS was wearing under her outer clothing. A field test of the substance was positive for cocaine. The total weight of the substance was slightly more than 1,000 grams.
Customs and Border Protection officers placed RAMOS into custody. Members of a joint State Police-federal task force that interdicts drug trafficking at the airport then interviewed the suspect. After being interviewed and processed at CBP, RAMOS was transported to the State Police Barracks at Logan, where she was booked. She was transported to the State Police Barracks in Revere, where she is being held on $100,000 cash bail. RAMOS will be arraigned in East Boston District Court on Monday.
