The charge carries a maximum penalty of $825,000 and/or life imprisonment.

Customs officers in Sydney have intercepted an Australian woman who swallowed 320 condoms full of heroin in an attempt to smuggle the drug into the country.

The 25-year-old Australian was stopped as she came off a flight from Singapore last Sunday, June 18, on suspicion that she was concealing drugs internally.

She was taken to hospital for a medical examination, which revealed a large number of items in her stomach, the Australian Federal Police said.

The woman has been in hospital under medical supervision while the condoms, containing approximately 300 grams of heroin, passed from her system.

She has been charged with importing a marketable quantity of a border-controlled drug and was due to appear in Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of $825,000 and/or life imprisonment.
