Police in Columbia have arrested two men arriving in that country after discovering that they were each smuggling $40,000 cash in $100 bills, hidden in their stomachs. The cash was wrapped in plastic, similarly to the way in which drug smugglers wrap up heroin and cocaine for internal body smuggling. The men were taken to a medical clinic and given laxatives to facilitate the removal of the packs of cash from their body.
