Crime doesn't toupee: Useless Colombian cocaine smuggler is caught trying to hide £27,000-worth of powder under his WIG

A Colombian smuggler has been caught trying to conceal half a kilo of cocaine beneath his wig at Barcelona airport.
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 today.
Underneath the brunette hairpiece they discovered £27,000 (30,000 euros) of cocaine.
Photos showed how the large quantity of illicit powder had kept his toupee propped up conspicuously.

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 - still wearing the toupee though with his eyes blocked in the image - but gave no more details of his identity.
Over 100 kilos of cocaine were seized by Spanish police at the Barcelona-El Prat airport in 2018.
The Colombian was detained at the end of June.
