A Canadian national has been arrested in Colombia after trying to board a flight to Toronto with a phony pregnant belly stuffed with cocaine, police say.

The tourist caught the attention of a policewoman at Bogota's International Airport who allegedly asked her how far along she was.

She reacted aggressively, which aroused the suspicion of officials who went on to search her.

This year, nearly 150 people were caught with drugs at Bogota's airport.

About a third of them were foreign nationals, according to the Colombian authorities.

The Canadian national had entered Colombia at the beginning of August and was about to board a flight to return to Toronto, when a policewoman asked her how long she had been pregnant.

"[The Canadian] didn't like the question, which made the official suspicious. Instinctively, she then very delicately touched the lady's belly, realising it was too hard and extremely cold," said the deputy director of Colombia's police anti-narcotics section, Colonel Esteban Arias Melo.

The woman allegedly said she was seven months pregnant.

After performing a body search, the police found two sealed bags stashed inside the latex belly, which contained 2kg (5lb) of cocaine.

Colombian authorities say the Canadian national will be charged with drug trafficking, possession and production and could be sentenced to between five and eight years in prison.

The drugs would have had a street value price of around $60,000 (?94,000), Colombian police said.

Government officials say 874 foreigners are currently being held in the country's jails, the majority on drug charges.

I do agree with this. They shouldn't be there with violent offenders. But what do we do with them?

I'm not sure about harder stuff like Cocaine, but what about stuff like Marijuana? Establish legal limits for driving like Alcohol and let people take it IMO.

      CALLAWAY, FL ? A 7-year-old boy has died a week after he was attacked by two bulldogs while riding his bicycle after school.
      Bay County Sheriff's Office officials told the News Herald of Panama City that Tyler Jett was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon at a Pensacola hospital. He suffered a punctured carotid artery.
      The child was attacked April 2 by an Alapaha blood bulldog named Fat Boy and a brindle bulldog named MJ. Authorities say the dogs belonged to Edward Daniels Jr.
      Family members came to Jett's aid and chased the dogs back to Daniels' home. Deputies investigating the attack arrested Daniels on drug charges. He was also charged last week with tampering with evidence. Authorities say he washed blood from the dog's face. Deputies say he could face additional charges.

      And now, from Taiwan, a cautionary tale with the following lesson: Don?t wear T-shirts with writing that you can?t understand.
      A fugitive in the town of Huwei, in the southern country of Yunlin, learned that the hard way when he was arrested earlier this month while wearing a shirt bearing the word ?Wanted," a police spokesperson told the French news agency AFP.
      The criminal, identified in reports by only his surname Wu, didn?t know any English, and had no clue what his shirt, a gift from his son, meant.
      But as it turned out, a patrolling police officer did; he?d passed a proficiency test and was curious about the word on the tee.
      That exchange led to Wu inspiring more questions?no doubt he appeared nervous?and to the cop checking his status on his police system. Which led to Wu being hauled in on drug charges.
      End of lesson. Capiche?

      No mask? No problem! At least, that appears to be the thinking behind a recent burglary in Slidell, La.
      Richard Boudreaux allegedly burglarized several businesses in his hometown, including his former employer, Kenny's Seafood, according to multiple local reports. But the 23-year-old apparently forgot his mask at home, so he wore a bucket over his head to hide his face from the restaurant's security cameras.
      While Boudreaux may have thought he was fooling the cameras with his makeshift disguise, investigators said Boudreaux's face has already been spotted on the restaurant's security footage, according to the United Press International.
      "Boudreaux dressed in all camouflage, wore gloves to prevent leaving fingerprints, and packed burglary tools. Everything was going as planned until Boudreaux realized he forgot his mask to cover his identity," Slidell police said in a statement posted on Facebook.
      According to Greater New Orleans' Times-Picayune, local authorities apprehended Boudreaux at his home shortly after the crime last week. Boudreaux allegedly cleaned out the cash register at Kenny's on Jan. 8.
      Boudreaux has been charged with two counts of burglary, along with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, the Times-Picayune reports. Police included the drug charges for items found in his home at the time of his arrest.

      Black magic and evil spirits have captured the soul of a new-born baby in Colombia who can apparently already walk by himself and produce fire, his own mother has claimed.
      Ana Feria Santos gave birth to her son last month but says her joy quickly turned to fear when she noticed that he had 'several abnormalities' - leading to fears in her community that he is the 'devil in disguise'.
      She says the boy can already stand up and walk - quite a feat for a child of just four weeks.
      She told the RCN Radio station: 'He walks like an adult, sometimes going off and hiding underneath the bed, in a suitcase, in the washing machine or in the fridge.'
      Her neighbours in the town of Lorica, near the Caribbean coast, also say he is possessed by a 'malign spirit' and that he is capable of producing fire.
      This, they say, is because burn marks have been found on his clothes and a sofa where he regularly sits.
      It has led to vigilante attacks on Santos and her taxi-driver husband ?scar Palencia L?pez's house, which is allegedly being pelted with stones on a nightly-basis by frightened residents.
      But the 28-year-old's story has not been believed by doctors, who have now launched an investigation into the possibility that the new-born could have been abused.
      The Colombian Family Welfare Institute, the National Police and the Catholic Church have also all refused to assert the claims that black magic is involved.
      A team of psychologists, a social worker, a nutritionist and a lawyer will now look into the case, with a source saying: 'The child shows signs of abuse.
      'Two small burns were found on the palm of the left hand and for that reason a restoration measure was adopted to [safeguard] the family environment.
      'The parents received a warning while the facts are being clarified.'
