(kidding….sort of)

Smuggling Storage Area #1-A British woman who allegedly hid cocaine under her wig has been arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling in Norway.

An airport customs officer noticed the 32-year-old had ‘a lot of hair’.

Closer examination revealed a one kilogram (2.2lb) bag of cocaine glued to her head under a hairpiece.

The Verdens Gang newspaper said the drug was glued so firmly to the woman’s real hair that police had to take her to hospital to have it removed.

A spokesman for Norway’s customs service said: ‘During a conversation with the woman, a customs official noticed she had a lot of hair and thought she was wearing a wig.

‘The woman and the drugs were later handed to police.’

The unnamed woman was stopped at Vaernes airport, near Trondheim, after flying in from Copenhagen on Sunday evening.

A court has remanded her until July 15.
