This is the hollowed-out watermelon stuffed with cocaine, crack, marijuana and a mobile phone that a 28-year-old woman tried to smuggle into a police station in Brazil.

The young woman was arrested while trying to enter the police station in the Brazilian municipality of Morro do Chapeu with the drug-laden fruit on the afternoon of 3rd February.

She was searched when she entered the building to visit her partner, who was being held in custody on suspicion of murder.
