Guardia Civil Officers at Reina Sofia airport arrested two people yesterday and charged them with smuggling cocaine into Tenerife.

The suspicious looking couple, a 26-year-old Colombian man with initials F.S.G.M., and a 19-year-old woman from Ecuador, were stopped by the officers. Nothing illegal was found in their luggage but they were found to be carrying 700g of capsules of cocaine in their stomachs.
