A priest was caught with £30,000 of cocaine hidden beneath his cassock after getting off a plane.
The Bolivian, who had three kilos of the drug in sealed bags strapped to his legs, raised suspicions when when he refused to be frisked by customs on "religious grounds".
A spokesman for Schiphol airport in Amsterdam said: "At first he claimed the white powder was holy sand, but tests showed it was cocaine."
The unnamed priest, who was arrested last week, is being held in custody charged with drugs smuggling.
