(Newser) – In other circumstances, lunch might consist of a sandwich and a Coke, but Spanish police say they have arrested a Colombian national living in a resort town for his variant on the theme—the cocaine sandwich. As Sky News reports, the concoction "contained ham, melted cheese, and nine cylinders of cocaine weighing more than 100g." The man was arrested with it at a bus station, and a search of his house yielded "more than a kilo of cocaine powder and pieces, as well as marijuana and tools to handle drugs." A housemate, also a Colombian national, was also detained. Meanwhile, the Local reports that Latin American cocaine stuffed in innocuous food items seems to be a recent trend: Police in the Spanish port city of Algeciras last week confiscated a shipment of Costa Rican pineapples crammed full of 5,500 pounds of cocaine.
