Drug In A Rug: Man Arrested for Smuggling Drugs Under His Toupee

The Smoking Gun: A subsequent search of the suspect yielded the cocaine, which was inside a plastic bag glued to his dome.

A Colombian man trying to sneak more than a pound of cocaine into Spain was caught with the package hidden (poorly) under his toupee, according to The Smoking Gun.

The extra carry-on bag was taped to the top of 65-year-old man's head (poorly), creating a bizarre image when the wind caught his artificial hair as he disembarked from a flight arriving in Barcelona from Bogota.

The National Police said it wasn't necessarily the Snooki-like bump that gave him away — he had tried to disguise it (poorly) under a hat — but rather his nervous demeanor.

The ingenuity of drug traffickers has no limit when trying to circumvent the controls,” police said.

Depending on purity and how it was cut, investigators said, the seized cocaine could have yielded 30,000 euros (equal to about $33,500).

Chicks on the Right Producer Rob Kendall shared the story with Mock and Daisy in Thursday's edition of Speed Round.

Mock: 

"What the heck? I mean did he not check the mirror before he got off the plane?"

Daisy:

"No, but to be fair, most people with a toupee clearly DON'T check the mirror."
