Woman caught with cannabis in her bra after foil wrapping triggers airport metal detectors

TWO women are due in court today on cannabis possession charges after one of them repeatedly set off a metal detector at an airport in New Zealand, allegedly leading to the discovery of foil-wrapped cannabis in her bra.
The woman, 52, had 50g of the drug in 28 individually wrapped packages in her underwear, police told The Southland Times.
A 44-year-old female friend travelling with her was then spoken to by police at Queenstown Airport - and it was discovered she also had about 40g of the illicit drug concealed about her body.
The women were attempting to catch a plane to Christchurch, about 480km north-east on the South Island, when apprehended.
