Woman Busted Smuggling $150,000 Worth Of Coke In Dreadlocks

Authorities at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok removed 3.3 pounds of cocaine from 23-year-old Nolubabalo “Babsi” Nobanda’s fake dreadlocks. Thai media was there to shamelessly record the bust, and officials say it’s possible the South African native could receive the death penalty.

“The embassy will give all the assistance she requires,” said Douglas Gibson, South Africa’s ambassador to Thailand. “I cannot speculate as to what punishment will be meted to her. In the past 10 years only two drug smugglers were executed taking into consideration the number of dealers in prisons, and these were not South Africans.”
