A Chilean man with a broken leg was arrested at Barcelona airport after his “cast” was found to be made of cocaine not plaster.

The 66-year-old carried six cans of beer and two hollowed-out stools that also contained cocaine, they add.

The police statement said officers were investigating whether the injuries were inflicted intentionally “to facilitate trafficking through security checks”. Police suspect the leg was deliberately broken to aid the smuggling

It was discovered after police sprayed the cast with a chemical that turns bright blue when it comes into contact with cocaine, police spokesman Jose Antonio Nin told the Associated Press.

Har! Gotcha.
