(CNN) – Don’t let the habits fool you!

Police say these are no nuns — they’re suspected drug smugglers.

The three women were caught Saturday after arriving at an airport on Colombia’s Caribbean island of San Andres on a flight from the capital city of Bogota.

San Andres police say the women thought the disguise would spare them from being searched.


But security thought their habits were suspicious and that the women acted nervously.

Police say each woman was searched and found with about four-and-a-half pounds of cocaine taped to their bodies.

They were arrested.
