Always keep a close eye on your luggage, when traveling abroad. I would probably go use the washroom, to check on the luggage at the last minute, to be sure that nobody has tampered with it.

This is 11 pounds of the stuff, not exactly the 100 grams somebody might slip in without you noticing.

But you obviously give excellent advice.

Yup. On a flight from Lisbon to Sao Tome, I had some joker try to load his bags onto my luggage cart as I stepped up to check in. He was trying to get his stuff to Sao Tome on my ticket, and he wasn’t even going on the flight. A major difference of opinion and shouting match ensued in two languages, ending with a 40 lb. bag being shoved into the guy’s face. Forcefully.

That's good advice.

The drug smuggler in this case, however, is not arguing that someone switched her luggage. I believe her argument is that she acted as a courier only because thugs were threatening to murder members of her family that were employees of the drugdealers.
