Panama City - A Guatemalan woman was arrested at Panama's international airport as she tried to enter the country with more than $31 000 in cash stashed inside her stomach, Panamanian police said on Wednesday.

The 44-year-old, whose identity was withheld, was arrested on Monday after police conducted an X-ray of the woman who was exhibiting “suspicious behaviour,” according to the authorities.

At least 39 different bundles that had been in her stomach were recovered by police, who estimated a total sum of $31 200.

The detainee was expected to expel the remaining bundles at a hospital in Panama City, where the authorities will determine the final amount she was illegally carrying. - Sapa-AFP
