Dabei ist das Versteck für das halbe Kilo Koks doch so gut gewesen. Keine Ahnung, wie die Polizei bei so viel Köpfchen des Schmugglers überhaupt darauf gekommen ist. Nun. Vielleicht war es genau das. Zu viel Köpfchen. Nice try, dude.
A Colombian man was detained at Barcelona’s international airport after half a kilo of cocaine was found hidden under an over-sized toupee, Spanish police said on Tuesday. Arriving on a flight from Bogota, the man attracted police attention as he looked nervous and had a disproportionately large hairpiece under his hat. They found a package stuck to his head with about €30,000 (£27,000) of cocaine.
“There is no limit to the inventiveness of drug traffickers trying to mock controls,” said the police statement. The statement enclosed a photo of a middle-aged man – apparently still wearing the toupee though with his eyes blocked in the image – but gave no more details of his identity. (telegraph)
