A Jamaican woman is in police custody in the United States, where she is facing federal narcotics smuggling charges after having been allegedly held with cocaine after arriving on a flight from Jamaica last Sunday.

The accused, Stefisha Miller, was reportedly held at John F Kennedy International Airport in New York with six pounds of cocaine that was hidden inside in a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream.

The drug has an estimated street value of US$110,000, according to the US Customs and Border Protection Agency.

Only last month, another Jamaican, Fly Jamaica employee Hugh Hall, was reportedly caught at the John F Kennedy airport with almost nine pounds of cocaine that was taped to his legs.
