The women were arriving at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on a flight from Southeast Asia.
US Customs and Border Protection officials say the three women arrived at about 16:20 on Tuesday on a flight from Laos, via Japan.
Officers found 470 packets of opium concealed in bags of tea leaves and packed inside the women’s luggage.
Police arrested the women, identified as 57-year-old Pa Yang and 58-year-old Mai Vue Vang of St Paul, Minnesota, and 52-year-old True Thao of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
They’re each charged with manufacturing or delivery of narcotics.
This video of Chicago’s airport security line went viral yesterday…and I assume it has to do with the best looking drug mules ever…
