A Mexican couple traveling with their 20-month-old daughter was arrested by drug enforcement agents at Bogota's El Dorado International Airport for allegedly trying to smuggle heroin out of Colombia, the National Police said.

The names of the two suspects were not released.

The baby was turned over to the Colombian Family Welfare Institute, or ICBF.

Adults should avoid using children as a cover for committing crimes, the National Police said. EFE
