Chilean police arrest woman traveling with suitcases made of cocaine

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 | 4:53 p.m. CDT

SANTIAGO, Chile — Police say two suitcases carried by a woman who was about to fly from Chile to Spain were made of cocaine.

Detective Leandro Morales at the Santiago airport said the drug "was not hidden in the luggage. This time the suitcases were the drug."

Morales told The Associated Press the suitcases were made of a substance combining cocaine with resin and glass fiber.

He said Tuesday a "chemical process" could be used to separate out the drug.

The officer said the suitcases were heavier than their contents.

The 26-year-old Argentine woman was arrested.
