KINGSTON, Jamaica _ Police in Jamaica say a French woman has been arrested at an island airport and charged with attempting to smuggle cocaine.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force on Sunday identified her as 33-year-old Emillie Legros. They say she told investigators she was a musician and gave a Jamaican address.

She was attempting to board a flight to the Belgian capital of Brussels from Sangster International Airport in the northern tourist city of Montego Bay. When her luggage was searched during screening, officials allegedly found four bottles containing a 1/2 pound (about a quarter kilogram) of cocaine.

Legros is due before a magistrate’s court on Tuesday. It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer.
