Allegedly the lady confessed to the police that she received the drugs in Paraguay and was supposed to take them to Rio. 

Arrested in Guara, she was taken to a police station after the police motorcycle squad brought her in on Monday. 

She was paid 500 Brazilian reals, about $100, for transporting the drugs to the Brazilian megacity. 

Sao Paulo's military police described the failed smuggling operation as 'creativity without limit'.

They posted pictures of the disguise on social media and the idea is definitely nothing short of creativity. 

As compared to other European countries, Brazil is also famous for its supply of drugs. 

Brazilian syndicates are thought to have infiltrated ports and sent the narcotics on container ships bound for Europe, where the market is worth more than $10billion.

Gangs have also been known to use Paraguay as a way station to transport cocaine into Brazil from elsewhere in South America.
