It won't be quite the New Zealand birthday experience for one Brazilian woman who is now in prison after being arrested at Auckland Airport.
The 29-year-old was found with 4.6 kilograms of cocaine in her luggage on Sunday.
The woman arrived on a flight from Chile but began her journey in Brazil.
She was questioned by Customs officers and X-rays of her bags indicated the contents needed further investigation.
The street value of the cocaine she was carrying is as high as $3.2 million in New Zealand.
New Zealand Customs said intelligence provided identified the woman as a high-risk passenger, and suspicions were confirmed after further questioning.
The woman is due to appear at the Manukau District Court on Friday.
