SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — A winner of the TV talent show "Latin American Idol" who was once loved by thousands in her native Dominican Republic was charged with drug smuggling after police found heroin stuffed in the heels of her platform shoes, authorities said Thursday.

Martha Heredia was arrested late Wednesday as she was about to board a plane to New York, said Frank Duran, the National Drug Control Agency's director for the city of Santiago.

He said police found 2.9 pounds of heroin in the heels of three pairs of shoes packed in her suitcase. Police also ordered Heredia to undergo X-ray tests to determine whether she had any drugs hidden inside her body, but none were found.

I’ll bet it’s not a lot of fun to be arrested with 3lbs of smack in the Dominican.

Afro-European. Most Dominicans are mixed race. Neighboring Haiti on the other hand is black majority. The two countries have different languages - Dominicans speak Spanish and Haitian speak French.

Maybe she can request a federal jail cell with:

Bloods Gang Member Rasoul Speight found with 100 bags of Heroin in his Butt (which appears to be a new record).

He apparently was preparing for his new cell buddy./s
