‘Rich’ Diet Does In Colombian Smuggler

Thu., Sept. 21, 1995

Carlos Trujillo had little room for airline food when he tried to board a flight to Colombia. His stomach was already full of $100 bills - 189 of them, tightly packed inside condoms.

Investigators are trying to find the source of the money and determine if it came from drug trafficking.Combined with $60,100 found in a knapsack on a Mickey Mouse doll and $10,495 Trujillo had in his pockets, agents recovered a total of $89,495, Smith said Wednesday.

The 30-year-old native of Colombia suffered no ill effects from the ordeal.
