When Anett Pikula, 39, drove up to the U.S. border from Mexico in her Mercedes, border patrol officials weren’t expecting this to happen next.
According to Daily Mail, Pikula tried to flirt with Arizona border patrol agents in an unsuccessful attempt to bring 13 pounds of Cocaine into the U.S. Pikula’s “overly talkative” behavior made the officers suspicious, so they referred her to a second checkpoint. There, a K-9 dog was deployed, and it quickly found a hidden compartment in the vehicle that was full of cocaine.
The compartment was reportedly hidden behind both of the Mercedes’ front quarter panels. Officers immediately arrested Pikula and handed her over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
CBP spokesman Garrett Reinhart later told the press that it was Pikula’s mouth that got her in trouble.
“Flirtation was what was going on,” Reinhart said.
Pikula, who was born in Mexico, is divorced and she filed for bankruptcy in 2010, when she was in over $100,000 worth of debt. She had been living in Phoenix before her arrest in a £215,000 apartment. During her free time, she enjoyed posting seductive photos of herself on Instagram. In the video above, Pikula is shown showing off her luxurious lifestyle in Arizona.
We hope you enjoy your time in prison, Anett!
