    Investigators say a 28-year-old South Florida woman spent five days in a hospital passing drug pellets filled with almost 1.5 pounds of cocaine, an idea she got from watching a movie.

    Regis Walker of Pembroke Pines was returning to the United States from Jamaica last Thursday when U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents took her aside for an interview and baggage search.

    The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports she agreed to an X-ray which showed she was carrying drug pellets inside her body.

    Court documents show Walker told investigators she used honey to help swallow the 54 pellets, an idea she got while watching the movie `The Mule.'

    Walker was arrested on suspicion of smuggling cocaine.

    She'll remain in jail at least until a bond hearing next week. It's not clear whether she has an attorney.
