(Photo : Reuters) Chinese Young Pioneers touch a package of heroin in a program to discourage drug use in Beijing in 2001. Four girls age 11 to 14 were caught smuggling heroin in their bodies in China.
Chinese authorities have apprehended four young girls in southwest China for smuggling heroin hidden inside their bodies.
Xinhua reports that police in Longling, Yunnan Province, working on a tip, pulled over a minibus suspected of transporting drugs in Haitou Village last week. In the vehicle were four girls between 11 and 14 who were from the neighboring Sichuan Province.

The children said they were lured by an "unfamiliar auntie" with 10,000 yuan ($1,635) if they agreed to transfer "some goods" from Yunnan's border areas to Sichuan. They had swallowed a total of 320 capsules of heroin before police intervened, according to local police.
The police confiscated a total of three pounds of heroin from the girls, who have since been sent back home. The police are now looking for the "auntie" and anyone else involved.
