Police arrested man for being in possession of ham, cheese and cocaine sandwich

Police in Benidorm, Spain, have arrested a Colombian man after he was found to be carrying a ham and cheese sandwich stuffed with over 100 grams of cocaine.

The 29-year-old was detained at a bus station in the Mediterranean beach town and is suspected of drug trafficking, police said in a statement.

A photo released by police shows a sandwich opened in half with nine small cylindrical plastic capsules spread over cured ham and cheese.

Police found over a kilo of cocaine in the man's home in Benidorm as well as cannabis. Spain's close ties to its former colonies in Latin America have made it the key entry point for cocaine from the continent bound for Europe.
