KENNEDY AIRPORT — A Manhattan fashion model was arrested at Kennedy Airport Saturday night after customs agents found three packets of cocaine in her pockets and purse, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Ingrid Parewijck, 25, was returning from Guyana about 7:30 p.m. Saturday and went through customs, where agents found the drugs upon a routine search, Brown said.

She was charged with possession of a controlled substance and faces 15 years in prison if convicted, the district attorney said.

Parewijck was arraigned in State Supreme Court in Kew Gardens Sunday and was released without bail, Brown said. She was due back in court July 26.
