A 39 year old Venezuelan national was arrested at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport for allegedly trying to smuggle illegal drugs.
The suspect, identified as Andres Rodriguez arrived in the country last week from Abu Dhabi.
Rodriguez is considered a drug mule and authorities were able to confiscate 92 pellets of cocaine inside his intestines.
