Another departing air passenger ended up in jail after anti-drug police discovered what appeared to be cocaine hidden in two liquor bottles in his luggage.

The 22-year-old man, a Romanian, was identified as Razvan Costin.  The Policía de Control de Drogas said that they found 2.96 kilos of cocaine in the two bottles.

They said the man entered the country Dec. 14 after traveling to great Britain and Spain.

Not counting this case, police reported that they had detained 33 persons carrying drugs at the airport. Some 27 were foreigners.

Before Christmas police made another arrest of a man who was carrying seemingly innocent containers filled with a cocaine mixture.
