Birmingham woman caught smuggling drugs


The 42-year-old has been charged with smuggling Heroin into Heathrow airport

A 42-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with possession of drugs after £320,000 worth of heroin was found in her baggage at Heathrow airport.

Raheela Ayub had arrived from Pakistan when eight kilos of Class A drugs were confiscated by Border Force officers at the airport’s Terminal 4.


Ayub was questioned by National Crime Agency’s Border Policing Command and charged with attempting to import drugs.

Marc Owen, Border Force Heathrow Director said: “Heroin is a vile and destructive drug, which ruins the lives of users and causes harm to the wider community. Border Force officers are on constant alert to keep illegal drugs and other banned substances out of the UK.”


Anyone with information regarding activity linked to smuggling should call the Border Force hotline on 0800 595 000.
