HOUSTON (AP) — A 19-year-old New York woman arriving in Houston on a flight from Jamaica has been arrested after a drug dog alerted authorities to narcotics in two pairs of shoes in her luggage.

Tests showed the narcotics to be 3 pounds of cocaine.

Brielle Latoi Orridge of the Bronx, N.Y., is awaiting a federal court appearance on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.

Orridge arrived Sunday at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport on a Continental Airlines flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica. Federal authorities say she was en route to New York City.

Conviction on the charge could get her up to 40 years in prison.
