Coke Santas

Colombian police have arrested two men for moulding figurines of Santa Claus out of cocaine for smuggling to the United States and Europe in time for the holiday season.

The market-savvy artisans also cast festive cups, place mats and other Christmas decorations from the same gelatinous mix, which when dried, looks like plastic, Colombia's intelligence police, DAS, said in a statement.

The men's laboratory was found in Tolima province, 130 kilometres from Bogota.

The two men have been jailed.
