A Latvian woman was detained in Córdoba airport after she was found to be carrying six kilos of cocaine, hidden in Boca Juniors football club merchandise.
The find was made by a specially trained sniffer dog, according to a statement released this morning by the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP), as the woman tried to board a plane destined for Paris. The drugs were located inside various items of Boca Juniors merchandise, including a wall clock, scarves, pots of shampoo, and even a packet of cocoa powder.
The case remains in the hands of the Federal court of the city of Córdoba, and judge Ricardo Bustos Fierro, the man who ordered the seizure of the drugs and arrest of the woman.
So far this year the AFIP has seized 70 kilograms of cocaine in Córdoba airport alone.
