A couple packed 33 sandwiches filled with 100 grams of cocaine each into their luggage.

Amsterdam – Dutch police have arrested two people at Schiphol airport for allegedly hiding three kilograms (6.6 pounds) of cocaine in sandwiches, authorities said Thursday.

Inspectors found the drugs last week in 33 sandwiches in the luggage of a 30-year-old man from Suriname and a Dutch woman, 56.

"With the unpacking of the sandwiches ... it transpired that they were not fit for consumption," said a military police statement. "They were filled with about 100 grams of cocaine each."
