Drug Smuggler's Suitcases Were Made of Cocaine

Via -

Smuggling drugs by hiding them in luggage is a common tactic of the drug trade - but a woman arrested as she was about to fly from Chile to Spain took things a step further.

According to polive, her suitcases were actually made from cocaine.

Detective Leandro Morales at the Santiago airport said that the drug 'was not hidden in the luggage. This time the suitcases were the drug.'

Morales told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the suitcases were made of a substance combining cocaine with resin and glass fiber - and that the suitcases were heavier than their contents.

He added that a 'chemical process' could be used to separate out the drug.

The 26-year-old Argentine woman carrying the cocaine-cases was arrested.
