Idol winner busted for transporting heroin

Posted: Updated:

A former Latin Idol winner was busted for trying to smuggle more than a million dollars worth of heroin into the United States.

Martha Heredia was arrested in the Dominican Republic this week. She won Latin American Idol back in 2009.

Officials in the Dominican Republic say they found more than two pounds of heroin stuffed in the heels of her platform shoes, just as she was about to board a plane to New York City.
