A 65-year-old Colombian man was busted for trying to smuggle a pound of cocaine under his wig in Barcelona Spain

A Colombian man had a very bad hair day when Spanish police at Barcelona's global airport discovered a half-kilo (1.1 pounds) of cocaine under his wig, according to reports.

When officers asked him to remove the wig, they reportedly found a package of cocaine stuck to his head.

"There is no limit to the inventiveness of drug traffickers trying to mock controls", the Spanish National Police said in a statement.

Spanish police were drawn to the man who had a precarious toupee on the top of his head and looked nervous as he got off a flight from Bogota.

Both sides consider appeal after judge reduces $80 million award against Monsanto
In March, the company lost a case to Hardeman, an American retiree who blames his cancer on the weedkiller. Bayer disagreed with Chhabria's ruling Friday denying the company a new trial.

Spain, with its historic and linguistic links to South America, is an important gateway for cocaine to Europe, mainly from Colombia.

The 65-year-old man arrived at Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport from Bogotá, Columbia wearing a toupee that "protruded more than necessary", local media reported. The UK tops the list, followed by the Netherlands, Denmark, France and Ireland, according to the UK's Guardian.

Pictures are worth at least a thousand words so we'll just leave this here.

Police have previously rumbled attempts to smuggle cocaine in hollowed-out pineapples, plaster casts, wheelchair cushions, breast implants and, in one instance, a 42-piece crockery set.
