The 32-year-old Phoenix woman was arrested at Perth Airport when the contraband was found hidden in books among her luggage.

The drugs were found when the woman’s baggage was examined by Australian Border Force (ABF) officers after her flight landed in Perth on Friday night.

“During the examination, ABF officers detected six packages concealed in six books,” the Australian Federal Police (AFP) said.

“Initial testing returned a positive result for the border controlled drug cocaine.

“The exact weight and purity of the cocaine will be subject to further forensic testing.

“The AFP attended and arrested the woman. She was later charged with importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug.”

The woman is facing a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

She is due to appear in Perth Magistrate Court.
