Cocaine sandwich arrest in Spain

Spanish police revealed yesterday (Wednesday) that they have arrested a Colombian man after he was found to be carrying a drug-stuffed ham and cheese sandwich.


The snack had a somewhat unhealthy filling – 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cocaine.

Police arrested the 29-year-old man at a Benidorm bus station after they suspected him of drug trafficking.  

Spain’s National police force released a photo showing the said sandwich with nine small cylindrical plastic capsules spread over cured ham and cheese.

Police found over a kilo of cocaine in the man’s Benidorm home as well as marijuana. They also detained his roommate, a 20-year-old Colombian national.

Spain’s close ties to Latin America have made it the key entry point for cocaine from the continent bound for Europe.
