There was a & # 39; loud ringtone & # 39; when she passed the security check, reports say.
Customs officer Marina Boiko said to Komsomolskaya Pravda: & A check with portable detector showed that it was going when the inspector pointed at her feet.
& # 39; The woman was asked to take off her shoes, and in her socks they found eight pieces of yellow metal stuck to her soles. & # 39;

The woman confessed that she wanted to smuggle the gold on the order of a Chinese contact.
She was detained and prosecuted on the basis of an article in the Penal Code that could lead to seven years in prison.
Customs officials said another woman tried to smuggle gold to China earlier this year. Her 10 bars were also hidden in her shoes.
