Police have arrested a 66-year-old man at Barcelona airport after realizing that the cast of his broken leg was made of cocaine.

The man was also carrying a fake six-pack of beer and two hollowed-out stools that were filled with cocaine. In total nearly 5 kilograms of the drug were seized.

Spain has become the primary entry point for cocaine into the European continent and also the largest consumer of the drug in the European Union.
