A woman who tried to smuggle over £37,000 of cocaine through Gatwick has been jailed for six and a half years.
Tamara Mckfarlin, from Birmingham, arrived on a flight from Jamaica on April 1.
She was stopped and searched by officers and a swab of her baggage and shoes gave a high reading for cocaine.
Arrested on suspicion of importing a controlled substance she refused an x-ray stating that she may be pregnant. A hospital later confirmed she was not.
Five days later she produced 20 packages of cocaine. Over the next three days a further 58 packages were passed.
In total, 373 grams of cocaine hydrochloride were produced with an estimated street value of £37,722.
Mckfarlin pleaded guilty to being concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of cocaine and was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court.
