The drug trafficking game just keeps getting more creative. A 26-year-old Argentine woman flying from Chile to Spain was arrested when police discovered that her two suitcases were made of cocaine, AP reports.  

Santiago airport Detective Leandro Morales says the drug "was not hidden in the luggage. This time the suitcases were the drug.” The suitcases were made of a substance combining cocaine with resin and glass fiber. Morales told the AP that a "chemical process" could be used to separate out the drug. Police became suspicious when they noticed that the woman's bags were heavier than their contents.
