A man claiming to be a Catholic priest has been arrested after he was caught carrying cocaine under his robes, police said.
The unnamed suspect initially refused to undergo a routine body check "for religious reasons," officers added.
The suspect was then spotted lining up at a different gate at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.
He was searched and 7 pounds of cocaine was found in packages taped to his body, police went said.
"We've seen a lot of things, baseballs filled with cocaine, wine bottles, plaster casts, but this is a first," said police spokesman Robert van Kapel.
He said the man, who was travelling from Bolivia, continued to insist he was a priest and did not confess any wrongdoing, arguing his rights had been violated by the search.
Van Kapel added: "If you want to enter (Europe) you have to pass a security check, you have to cooperate and you can't refuse a body search.
"He'll be brought before a judge."
