A woman has been charged with importing drugs, after border guards at Heathrow found 3.5kg of cocaine hidden in a rucksack.
Border Force officers discovered the drugs, with an estimated street value of £140,000, after stopping a passenger who had arrived at the airport from Bogota, Colombia, last Friday (August 19).
Border Force Heathrow director Phil Douglas said: "Border Force officers play a crucial role in securing our borders against drug smuggling.
"In this case, their professionalism has meant that dangerous Class A drugs have been seized and will no longer end up in our communities where they can do so much harm.
"We continue to work with our colleagues from the National Crime Agency to do all we can to stamp out this despicable trade and bring those responsible to justice."
Daniela Valdova appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Tuesday (August 23) charged with importing a Class A drug.
The 39-year-old, of Prilepy, in the Czech Republic, was remanded in custody and will appear at Isleworth Crown Court on September 22.
