Subject: Coke cup 'not the real thing'

Written By: Philip Eno on 07/12/10 at 1:07 pm

Lab tests have revealed that a replica World Cup trophy seized by police in Colombia is made out of cocaine.

The 14in statue was found in a delivery crate at Bogota airport, reports the BBC.

The crate was in an airmail warehouse waiting to be sent to an address in Spain, airport anti-drug chief Jose Piedrahita said.

The World Cup replica was made up of 11kg of the drug, mixed with acetone or gasoline to make it mouldable.

The gold-painted statue was found on a routine sweep of the airport, authorities said.

Meanwhile, a submarine built by drug-traffickers was found in Ecuador before its maiden voyage.

The submarine, capable of carrying tonnes of cocaine, was discovered in a river near the border with Colombia, the US Drug Enforcement Agency said.

The camouflaged 100ft vessel has a conning tower, periscope and air-conditioning system.

Wow, just like "Traffic"!

"I see, I see, a World Cup trophy made of cocaine," he sniffed.  "Case closed, Watson!"
