Dominican agents arrest Spaniard with cocaine-stuffed Taino figurines

SANTO DOMINGO. - The National Control Drugs Agency (DNCD) last night seized 18 artisan figures stuffed with cocaine that would’ve been flown to Madrid from the Las Americas International Airport (AILA), in a suitcase if the Spanish citizen Maria de la Soledad Martinez, who was immediately arrested by agents assigned to the terminal.

The clay souvenir Taino figures of different sizes confiscated would’ve been taken to Spain aboard Air Europe flight UX-0088, but were detected when the foreigner’s luggage was inspected.

DNCD spokesman Lebrón Robert said investigators are trying to determine the source of the souvenirs.
