A Colombian man in Barcelona was caught with $34,000 worth of cocaine under his wig!

The Guardian reports that Spanish police apprehended the man at Barcelona’s international airport. They found over 1.1 pounds of cocaine under his wig.

Officials said that the “considerably nervous” man, who landed on a flight from Bogotá caught the officers’ attention because his wig was a “disproportionate size.”

Spanish police labeled the discovery as “Operation Toupee,” where they discovered a “perfectly sealed package taped to his head” equivalent to $34,000 of cocaine.

“There is no limit to the inventiveness of drug traffickers trying to mock controls,” police said in a statement.

The man was then arrested.

Drug smuggling is pretty common for passengers who act as mules, with many using strange ways to conceal their drugs. Some swallow them, hide them in their breast implants, and others have even hidden drugs inside the soles of their shoes!

According to the European Union studies, Spain is the EU’s sixth-biggest consumer of cocaine.
