    Colombian police seize undetectable ‘black cocaine’
    BOGOTA,
    – Colombian police seized a shipment of black cocaine that is almost
    impossible to detect with traditional anti-trafficking methods,
    regional police chief Fabio Cardona said.”It’s the first time we have
    encountered this type of cocaine,” Cardona said after reporting that 15
    packets of the drug had been discovered in the fuel tank of a car
    heading to the El Dorado airport in Bogota.”It’s one of the many
    strategies of the traffickers” to evade authorities, said Cardona.Black
    cocaine has no odor, making it extremely difficult to detect, even for
    well-trained drug-sniffing dogs.The 15 drug packets, of undetermined
    weight, were only found to be cocaine two days after their seizure,
    after police sent the stash to police laboratories to investigate their
    chemical compound.Black cocaine can often be smuggled undetected –
    disguised as plastic coating, print cartridge toner, make-up or
    fertilizer — and effectively washed out with a solvent upon delivery.
