Man Arrested In Spain With Cocaine Worth $34,000 Under His Wig

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.

Boxing champ Pernell Whitaker dies; hit by car in Virginia
Born on January 2, 1964 in Norfolk, Virginia, Pernell Whitaker would become one of the greatest boxers of his generation. He retired in 2001 following a loss to Carlos Bojorquez as Whitaker finished his career with a record of 40-4-1.

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.
