Arrested on a full stomach.  Brazilian officials have captured an Irish man they say swallowed 72 mini-bags of cocaine; trying to smuggle them out of the country on a flight from Sao Paulo to Portugal.

And they have the photos to prove it.

X-Ray images of the man show the capsules of the drug inside his body that are worth about $200,000 dollars and add up to about 1 kilogram.

The suspect had been charged with international drug trafficking and faces up to 15 years in prison.
