A 92-year-old woman and her companion have been detained in the Madrid-Barajas airport by officers of the Civil Guard, who seized 4,300 grams of narcotics hidden on various parts of the arrested woman’s body. According to a statement, the detentions took place on Friday following the arrival of a flight from São Paulo (Brazil). The attitude of one of the travelers on this flight, who was being transported in a wheelchair, aroused the suspicions of the police officers. The elderly woman and her companion were on their way to take a flight headed for the Spanish island of Tenerife, and when the officers moved to carry out the appropriate inspection, the companion began “a crazed flight.” According to sources, the elderly woman was subjected to a search, in the course of which it was discovered that she was carrying several packets with a weight of 4,300 grams of cocaine hidden on her body, for which reason she was detained. Immediately thereafter, a search was begun in Terminal 4 for the nonagenarian’s companion, a 44-year-old woman of Uruguayan nationality, who was trying to leave the Madrid airport and who was also arrested.
