MELBOURNE - AUSTRALIA has charged a Malaysian woman with attempting to smuggle heroin into Melbourne by hiding the drug in her bra.

Customs Department officials say they suspected the woman may have been carrying drugs when she arrived on Thursday at Melbourne International Airport on a flight from Bangkok.

A female officer conducted a frisk search and found 'inconsistencies' around her bra, which turned out to be a package of white powder, customs officials said in a statement on Friday.

The statement said the package contained approximately 14 ounces (400 grams) of heroin.

The 20-year-old woman will appear in court in April. She faces a maximum penalty of 25 years imprisonment and/or fine of A$550,000 (S$538,000). -- AP

She;s very lucky to have been busted in Australia instead of in Malaysia, Indonesia or Singapore. She may do time, but she'll be spared the noose.
