A 50-year-old British woman is being held in custody in Munich on suspicion of attempting to smuggle two kilos of crystal meth out of Munich airport disguised as sweets.

The unnamed Brit was caught with around €160,000 - €200,000 worth of crystal meth trying to get through secutity, reports the Münchner Abendzeitung.

Customs officers at the airport found the drugs in the woman's hand-luggage.

The meth had been carefully divided up, and wrapped up in a variety of sweet wrappers.

Customs officers became suspicious at the vast quantity of "bon-bons" the woman was taking on her journey – and after an examination of the contents, the drugs were seized.

The woman is believed to have entered Germany from Lisbon.

Currently in custody, she is likely to face a prison sentence of at least two years.
