    Woman Accused of Smuggling Cocaine in Hair Spray Bottles

    A woman was arrested at Kennedy Airport after customs officers found 6 pounds of cocaine packed into hairspray and hair gel bottles, authorities said.

    The woman was stopped after arriving on a flight from the Dominican Republic on Nov. 18 when officers noticed unusually heavy hair products in her baggage.

    The cocaine was found in the hollowed-out bottles.

    She faces narcotics smuggling charges.
