Man Arrested with 200 Grams of Cocaine

An Icelandic man in his twenties, arriving at Keflavík International Airport from Copenhagen on Sunday night, was sentenced to custody on Monday after being caught with 200 grams of cocaine inside his clothes and inside his body.

The Sudurnes customs officers caught the man during regular inspection. The man will stay in custody until July 9 while Sudurnes police are investigating his case, Fréttabladid reports.

This is the second case within a short period of time where someone has been caught at Keflavík Airport trying to smuggle cocaine by swallowing it.

A Dutch citizen was recently caught and it took the smuggler more than two weeks to get rid off the nearly 80 packages he had swallowed.
