SCHIPHOL – The Royal Marechaussee at Schiphol uncovered 97 kg of cocaine at the airport on Monday. The drugs were packed in the hollow walls of 119 wooden crates, the Marechaussee announced Thursday.

The crates served to protect a shipment of ceramic masks. A 47-year-old Amsterdam man and a 33-year-old man from Drachten have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the smuggling. The cocaine, originating from Ecuador, was destined for the Dutch market and was discovered during a check. Both suspects are still in custody.
