A 25-year-old Dominican man who smuggled drugs in his luggage by
impregnating his clothing with cocaine was caught Wednesday by
Colombian Police at the Palonegro International Airport in Bucaramanga.
Preliminary tests found that about 30 kilos of cocaine had been impregnated in 72 pieces of clothing.
According to the Police, the drug trafficker was on his way to Santiago de los Caballeros in the Dominican Republic where the drugs would be sold for US$95,000.
This year so far, seven people have been caught at airports with drug impregnated clothing.
