Officials said the cocaine was valued at around $10,000.

This is the wrong type of carry-on luggage.

Customs officials have arrested a 24-year-old woman they said tried to smuggle a half-pound of cocaine in her vagina.

Shekira Thompson was arrested last Sunday at Kennedy Airport after she got off a plane from Kingston, Jamaica, according to NJ.com.

Thompson presented herself for inspection after getting off the plane. Officials then took her to a private search, according to a release from the U.S. Customs Dept.

Investigators said when they questions Thompson, she admitted to inserting a foreign object into her body.

A short time later, officers found an egg-shaped container they said contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine.

The weight of the powder was about a half-pound and had an estimated street value of $10,000, according to the release.
