The Spanish police arrested a Colombian man at Barcelona airport last month who tried to hide half a kilo of cocaine under his wig. The agents call the incident Tuesday a "surreal situation".
The 65-year-old man had attached the cocaine package to his head and put a wig over it. Then he had put on a hat, as the agents sketch.
Eventually the man fell through the basket because he looked rather nervous. A check found that there were 503 grams of cocaine in the package with an estimated value of 30,000 euros, the authorities said.
The man will be charged with transporting drugs. He is currently stuck in Spain.
