NEW YORK -- A woman was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport after allegedly trying to smuggle $10,000 worth of cocaine in her vagina, according to WPIX.

Officials said 24-year-old Shekira Thompson arrived at JFK from Kingston, Jamaica Sunday afternoon.

According to Port Authority Police,  she was "sweating and acting very nervous" when she went through customs at 2 p.m.

Police said she was then taken to a private search room where she went through a body X-ray scan which came back negative.

However, she then admitted she had cocaine inserted in her vagina and customs officers recovered an "egg-shaped form" which tested positive for cocaine.

She was arrested by customs officers after half a pound of cocaine was seized with an estimated$10,000 street value.

Thompson faces state narcotics smuggling charges and will be prosecuted by the Queens District Attorney's Office.
