According to court documents, Samantha Kurdilla takes the phrase “I got that cocaine coochie” to an entirely different level.
When Kurdilla, 22, was walking back into the United States from Tijuana, Mexico last week, a drug detection dog was reportedly “alerted to a narcotic odor” emanating from her “groin area,” The Smoking Gun reports. Kurdilla was arm-in-arm with a man named James Perry who announced “I’m not with her” when the K-9 showed interest in his companion.
Kurdilla and Perry were then held at a pedestrian crossing facility where Customs and Border Protection agents asked her if she was bring anything over the border. Twice, she said, “no.” Perry allegedly admitted that said he and Kurdilla were partying in Tijuana where they were smoking marijuana.
Though, come to find out, Kurdilla did have some contraband on her person–south of her border that is.
Investigators reportedly discovered that she had a condom filled with 100 grams of cocaine “within her vaginal cavity.” After her rights were read, Kurdilla admitted to smuggling drugs “in exchange for compensation.” She added that the drugs in her vagina belonged to Perry. Perry, 44, allegedly admitted to the vaginal smuggling scheme, saying that he hoped to resell the drugs in the U.S.
Besides the confessions, agents found some damaging texts from her one, one of which that read, “I’m smuggling cocaine and heroin in my coochie.”
The felony complaint filed against Kurdilla only mentions cocaine, so when she mentioned heroin in the text it may have referred to another smuggling attempt.
Kurdilla and Perry will make separate appearances Thursday in U.S. District Court in San Diego.
