Anti-drug agents detained two British women Tuesday at Juan Santamaría and accused them of trying to smuggle more than a kilo of cocaine to Madrid.

Agents said that the women had inserted packages of the drug in their brassieres. The women were identified by the last names of May Dawkins and Reid.

Agents said that the four packages of cocaine weighed in at 1.503 kilos.

The two women now face allegations of international drug trafficking. The pair brought to 31 the number of persons detained for that crime at the airport since the first of the year. Agents said 10 of those had ingested the drug to slip through the various checkpoints.
