Earlier this year, Spanish police arrested a Colombian man who allegedly had a half-a-kilo of cocaine stashed under his toupee when he arrived in Barcelona on a flight from Colombia. The accused mule caught the attention of investigators due to the towering nature of the wig sitting atop his head. A subsequent search of the suspect yielded the cocaine, which was inside a plastic bag glued to his dome. Cops said that the accused mule, who was not identified, arrived June 18th in Barcelona on a “hot flight” from Bogota, which they described as an incoming plane from a narcotics producing country. Police said, “The ingenuity of drug traffickers has no limit when trying to circumvent the controls.” Depending on purity and how it was cut, investigators said, the seized cocaine could have yielded 30,000 euros (equal to about $33,500).

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A brewery got a little too merry for local authorities. A North Carolina brewery pulled its winter ale from taproom shelves after the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission made a visit. The beer in question was reportedly being sold in cans that featured provocative imagery involving reindeer. While the offending cans have been removed from shelves, they reportedly showed reindeer in various sexual positions. While the reindeer were pixelated on the cans, the images were still considered explicit enough to be removed from the brewery’s shelves. Sycamore Brewing pulled the 2019 version of their Christmas Cookie Winter Ale from their shelves after an anonymous complaint was made about the imagery on the cans. The brewery brought the beer back to shelves with what they described as “G-rated can art.” According to the company’s Facebook page, the beer will not be available in stores and will only be sold in their taproom. Since the reindeer design wasn’t going to be sold in wide distribution, Sycamore Brewing believed that they could get away with the risqué holiday design. (
