A traveller was arrested at Keflavík airport trying to smuggle 24 packets of cocaine into the country, reports DV.

The man, in his thirties, flew in from London and was stopped while trying to leave through customs.

The Suðurnes police have taken the man into custody where he will stay until next Friday and the 24 packets – weighing approximately 120 grams – have been confiscated.
