Half a Kilogram of cocaine said to be worth £27000 (€30,000 ) was seized from a passenger arriving into Spain from Colombia.
SPAIN – What was the giveaway?
A Colombian man was arrested at Barcelona’s international airport after cocaine worth £27,000 was found under his toupee.
The suspicious nervous behaviour of the passenger caught the eye of the airport police officers who then noticed his unusual extra large wig.
This lead to the singling out of the passenger and eventual detainment of the suspect who was believed to be traveling from Bogota in Colombia to Spain in June of 2019.
Officers said in a statement:
“There is no limit to the inventiveness of drug traffickers trying to mock controls.”
The Spanish Authorities released photos of the man with and without the wig
