Woman detained as she smuggled gold from Russia to China


A woman with feet of gold was held by Russian customs after she was spotted walking in an 'unnatural way'.

The 'nervous' 27-year-old tourist was seeking to cross the land border with China when she set off metal detectors.

She was found to have eight gold pieces valued at 61,200 taped to the soles of her feet.

There was a 'loud ring' when she passed through the security control, say reports.

Customs official Marina Boiko told Komsomolskaya Pravda: 'A check with portable detector showed that it rang when the inspector pointed at her feet.

'The woman was asked to take her shoes off, and in her socks they found eight pieces of yellow metal bullion taped to her soles.'

The woman confessed she was seeking to smuggle the gold on order from a Chinese contact.

She was detained and faces prosecution under a criminal code article which could lead to up to seven years in prison.    

The customs officers said that another woman tried to smuggle gold into China earlier this year. Her 10 bars were also concealed in her shoes.
