Police in Spain confiscated a wheel of cheese from a man. They found 2.2 pounds of cocaine inside of it.
They stopped the 35-year-old man carrying it because he was “acting suspicious.”
The man was arrested on suspicion of committing a crime against public health.

Of course, Twitter users made plenty of cheese puns over this story:
It was no ordinary cheese, but this bust was certainly worth some cheddar. Police seized a cocaine-filled wheel … https://t.co/7p5WoXu8Mz

This proves that drug smugglers are getting more creative. There are many people using food to smuggle drugs.
Back in November, a man was caught in Arizona at the border with meth wrapped in tortilla packages.
A few days before, Border Patrol found meth mixed in with carrots.
