Brits are jailed for drug wig smuggle.
Cousins Tanisha Samuels, 20, and Sherine Hardy, 18, from Derby, were arrested at Montego Bay airport on Sunday with more than 4lbs of cocaine stuffed in socks stitched to the underside of long, dark-haired wigs they were wearing.
The pair claimed they were offered a combined pounds 4,000 to transport the drugs from Jamaica to London's Gatwick airport, police said.
The Montego Bay court heard they were stopped because they were acting suspiciously.
The pair, who pleaded guilty to drug charges, were ordered to pay a fine of pounds 139,000 each or face an additional six months in prison. They represented themselves in court and it was not clear if they would be eligible for parole.
"This is a very serious offence, but because you have no previous convictions, I am going to be lenient," Judge Winsome Henry said.
