So if you’re a Colombian cartel boss, what’s next? Disguising your couriers as nuns and stuffing their habits with pounds of yeyo, of course. Sadly, that brilliant scheme didn’t work out so well either. The problem was when a flight landed at Colombia’s San Andres Island last weekend, security guards immediately noticed that a group of three nuns leaving the plane appeared nervous.
Sheriff Mark Lamb from Pinal County, Arizona joined Laura Ingraham on Monday to discuss the ongoing crisis at the southern border. Sheriff Lamb told Laura Ingraham about the cartels are using women dressed as nuns to get drugs into the country.
Sheriff Lamb: “The other day we had a traffic stop. There was a lady in the front seat dressed as a nun with a Bible on her lap. We ended up finding eight pounds of Fentanyl in her undergarments. So when you say there’s not a problem, there’s absolutely a problem and the cartel has no problem crossing any of those lines.”
Laura Ingraham: “She was dressed as a nun? That’s a new one. How many people could that kill?”
Sheriff Lamb: “Eight pounds of Fentanyl will kill a lot… This would kill a lot of people. It’s killing our youth everyday.”
The jig was up when security guards noticed the nuns in the airport at San Andres Island. San Andres is on a longtime cocaine route from Colombia to Nicaragua, according to the IB Times.
Security said the nuns looked nervous when they deplaned, and that the fabric of their habits looked different than traditional habits.
When police approached them, they dropped the sister act and began to cry. They said their own poverty had pushed them to get involved with the cartels, UPI reported.
And they say we don’t need a border wall or raised security?
