It appears some drug dealers are running out of ideas.

A man in Barcelona, Spain was arrested after police noticed he was acting nervous while passing through security, according to Spanish National Police.

Police noticed the odd shape of the man's toupée and promptly placed him under arrest after finding a half-kilo of cocaine wrapped up and attached to the man's head.

The man came from Bogota, Colombia and was wearing a hat on top of the large bulge in his toupée to try and hide the drugs.

The suspect's name has not been released, but photos released by Spanish National Police show just how much cocaine the man was allegedly trying to smuggle.
