SANTIAGO, Chile — Police say two suitcases carried by a woman who was about to fly from Chile to Spain were made of cocaine.
Detective Leandro Morales at the Santiago airport says the drug “was not hidden in the luggage — this time the suitcases were the drug.”
Morales tells The Associated Press that the suitcases were made of a substance combining cocaine with resin and glass fibre.
He said a “chemical process” could be used to separate out the drug.
The officer says the suitcases were heavier than their contents.
The 26-year-old Argentine woman was arrested.
