At the Josep Tarradellas Airport in Barcelona, authorities apprehended a man when they noticed he clearly had a pound of cocaine under his toupee.
The toupee on the traveler “protruded more than necessary,” which set an investigation into motion that led to more than $33,000 worth of cocaine on top of the main’s head. This is according to a report from ABC 6.
The Spanish National Police made light of the joke on their Twitter page, posting a photo of him along with the caption “he’s going to drop his hair!”

There was a report by the Daily Caller earlier this summer on “one of the largest drug seizures in United States history,” when $1 billion of cocaine was found by federal agents at a port in South Philadelphia.
