A REPLICA of the World Cup made from cocaine has been seized by Colombian authorities at an airport.
Airports anti-drug chief Colonel Jose Piedrahita said Colombian authorities found the unusual statue during a routine security check by anti-drug agents in a mail warehouse at Bogota’s international airport.
The 36-centimetre-high statue was inside a box headed for Madrid. The statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base.
Col Piedrahita said laboratory tests confirmed the cup was made of 11 kilos of cocaine, mixed with acetone or petrol to make it mouldable.
