Cops: Colombian Drug Smuggler Had Cocaine Hidden Under His Towering Toupee

Spanish police last month arrested a Colombian man who allegedly had a half-a-kilo of cocaine stashed under his toupee when he arrived in Barcelona on a flight coming from Colombia.

The accused mule caught the attention of investigators due to the towering nature of the wig sitting atop his head. A subsequent search of the suspect yielded the cocaine, which was inside a plastic bag glued to his dome.

The arrested man is usually seen from the above mug shots (click to enlarge).

Cops said of which the accused mule, who was not identified, arrived June 18 in Barcelona on a “hot flight” coming from Bogota, which they described as an incoming plane coming from a narcotics producing country.

“The ingenuity of drug traffickers has no limit when trying to circumvent the controls,” police said.

Depending on purity as well as also how the idea was cut, investigators said, the seized cocaine could have yielded 30,000 euros (equal to about $33,500).
