Police in Benidorm have arrested a Colombian man after he was found to be carrying a ham and cheese sandwich stuffed with over 100 grams of cocaine.

The 29-year-old was detained at a bus station in the Mediterranean beach town of Benidorm and is suspected of drug trafficking, police said in a statement.

A photo released by police shows a sandwich opened in half with nine small cylindrical plastic capsules spread over cured ham and cheese.

Police found over a kilo of cocaine in the man's home in Benidorm as well as cannabis and detained his roommate, a 20-year-old Colombian national.

Spain's close ties to its former colonies in Latin America have made it the key entry point for cocaine from the continent bound for Europe.
