A 17-year-old girl was arrested after being found with more than five kilograms of cocaine strapped to her legs.
The incident occurred on Monday as she was exiting a bus traveling from Goiânia to the municipality of Palmas in Brazil.
The Military Police were conducting an anti-drug trafficking operation with the Group of Operations with Dogs (GOC) when they ordered the bus to stop, according to G1 news.
During the search, one of the dogs sniffed something suspicious in one of the bags, prompting the officers to call the bag's owner.
However, the officers noticed that the teenager was walking strangely and questioned her. She then confessed to hiding drugs around her ankles.

A female police officer was called to the scene to conduct a search, where she found five packets of cocaine wrapped around the young girl's legs.
The Commission for the Protection of Minors was alerted to the case and accompanied the girl to the police station to register the drug trafficking crime.
