Authorities in Bangkok have busted a Kenyan woman ferrying cocaine through the country’s Suvarnabhumi airport.

One kilogram of the illegal substance was found inside her body, one way popularly used by many drug smugglers.

Her identity is not yet known but the operation was carried by both the narcotics unit and the air unit of Bangkok.

This is not the first case to have involved a Kenyan as previously a Kenyan man was arrested at the same airport with 12 kilograms of cocaine.

The man who was identified as Ouko had swallowed at least 68 pallets of the substance hoping not to be caught by authorities.

The country has been listed as one of the routes used by many drug traffickers due to its exploitable routes through its borders.

One of the popular routes known as the Gold Triangle has been used over and over again by traffickers from Thailand and Myanmar and to the mainland of China.

The death penalty has not stopped or scared some of the smugglers as many others are reported to have caught in between the borders.
