Federal agents are hot on the heels of a New Jersey woman who allegedly tried to smuggle $140,000 worth of cocaine inside three pairs of cork wedge shoes.

Customs and Border Protection officers arrested 24-year-old Iveliza Perez of Camden, N.J., at Philadelphia International Airport on Wednesday.

The agency says officers checking Perez’s baggage after her arrival from Jamaica found the shoes to be unusually heavy, and an X-ray detected irregularities inside the sole and heel of all six. Officers say they found a white powder that tested positive for cocaine.

Perez was turned over to Philadelphia police and charged with drug offenses. She was jailed on $100,000 bail.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Perez.
