A 39-year-old man has been arrested at TFS Reina Sofia with over a kilo of cocaine in his stomach. Identified as W.R.D.P., the man was picked up off a flight from the mainland as part of the operation codenamed Time to Time, intended to try to stem the entry of drugs into Tenerife.
Having been detained, his luggage was searched but nothing was found. He was then transferred to a hospital to check whether he was trafficking drugs within his body. X-rays confirmed that he was carrying 80 capsules filled with cocaine, weighing 1,018 grams in total.
He is now being processed, and could face some 8 years in prison. DA
