Three women dressed up as nuns were caught at a Colombian airport trying to smuggle cocaine taped to their bodies, police said Tuesday.

The women were caught Saturday after arriving on Colombia’s island of San Andres on a flight from Bogota.

They thought the disguise would spare them from being searched. But their habits were shabby and the women acted nervously, which gave them away, San Andres police chief Jorge Gomez said.

Each had 2 kg of cocaine taped to their body.
