PEMBROKE PINES, Florida (AP) — Investigators say a 28-year-old South Florida woman spent five days in a hospital passing drug pellets filled with almost 1.5 pounds of cocaine.

Regis Walker of Pembroke Pines was returning to the United States from Jamaica last Thursday when US Customs and Border Protection agents took her aside for an interview and baggage search.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports she agreed to an X-ray which showed she was carrying drug pellets inside her body.
