IMAGINE THIS? I Thought I Was Buying Headphones - 22yrs Old Lady Caught With 18 Bags Of Cocaine Claims (Photos)


The first photos have emerged of a young Australian woman who claims she was tricked into smuggling millions of dollars worth of drugs out of Colombia.
.
Handcuffed and standing behind 5.8 kilograms of cocaine wrapped in black plastic, Cassandra Sainsbury could face 25 years in a South American jail if found guilty.
.
The 22-year-old told her family she thought the packages were 15 headphones a local man posing as a translator had arranged to buy for her at a discount.
.
But she was arrested at El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá on April 11 on her way back to Australia after an X-ray search allegedly revealed something suspicious in her luggage.
.
Lt Colonel Jorge Triana, head of anti-narcotics police at the airport, told Daily Mail Australia he didn't believe Cassandra's headphone story.
.
Lt Colonel Triana said drug mules often feigned ignorance when they were caught.
.
Lt Colonel Triana said even if Cassandra didn't know about the drugs she likely faced jail time either way.
.
Cassandra's family insisted she was an innocent victim being 'set up' by a man she had just met.
