Miss Universe not arrested for smuggling cocaine, say cops

Pia-Wurtzbach

PETALING JAYA: The news report claiming police had arrested Miss Universe 2016, Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines, is fake.

The Star reported Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Aziz Ali as saying the report was completely fabricated.

“She has not been arrested, the report was fake,” he said earlier today.

The report which was widely shared on social media, claimed Wurtzbach was arrested at KLIA for trying to smuggle 10kg of cocaine, hidden in two coffee bags into the country.

The story was also apparently shared in the World section of news24-tv.com.
