Customs officials have caught multiple women attempting to smuggle gold bars into the country by hiding them in their private parts, according to police in South Korea.
The Korea Customs Service has announced that officers have arrested 512 people at the Incheon International Airport, after they were caught smuggling gold.
A total of $100 million worth of gold was seized from the suspects.
According to the police investigation, the 51 suspects were part of a gold smuggling ring that has been operating the country for two years.
The smugglers have been traveling to Japan and China, where they bought gold at the market price.
They then smuggled the gold into the country and sold the bars for a 15% profit, which is the amount of sales tax imposed on precious metals.
Investigators found 5 gold bars in the rectum of each male and female suspect, and an additional 5 gold bars in the private parts of each woman.
