WORLD RECORD: Nigerian woman swallowed 5 lbs. of heroin

Customs officials at Dulles International Airport say a Nigerian woman set an unfortunate record when she tried to smuggle almost five pounds of heroin into the country.

Authorities say 52-year-old Bola Adebisi (ah-deh-BEE-see) ingested 180 thumb-sized pellets filled with $150,000 worth of heroin. She is charged with drug smuggling in federal court.

Officers became suspicious Saturday when she said she was coming to the U.S. to visit her brother, but couldn’t describe him. A routine pat-down found her stomach to be abnormally rigid. An X-ray revealed the pellets and she was taken to the hospital.

A public defender declined to comment.

The previous record for an ingested drug seizure at Dulles occurred last year, when another Nigerian was discovered with more than four pounds of pellets
