Passenger carrying cocaine detained at Lisbon airport arrivals

Portugal’s criminal police (PJ) detained a passenger at Lisbon airport carrying enough cocaine for 24,000 individual doses, police said on Tuesday.

According to the PJ’s National Unit to Combat Drug Trafficking, the drug, transported from South America to Lisbon, was hidden inside coffee packages and was mixed with ground coffee.

The country’s criminal police said the drug had been subject to a “complex chemical treatment” which the police authorities only recently discovered.

The 35-year-old suspect has been detained following a judicial interrogation.
