Two kilos of drugs were found hidden behind a pocket of latex in the fake pregnancy prosthetic, the Toronto Sun reports.

Colombian authorities often challenge passengers they suspect may be 'drug mules' headed to North America.

In the past, smugglers have used a number of bizarre techniques to hide the drugs, from disguising themselves as nuns to inserting them in breast implants.
