An organization of “mules” used children and babies to smuggle cocaine from European airports, including hiding the drugs in his swaddling clothes, was dismantled by Spanish police in collaboration with the Dutch and Belgian, officials said Monday.

Following investigations were “detained 20 people -16 in Spain, 2 in Belgium and 2 in Holland and seized 11 kilos of cocaine hydrochloride,” Spanish police said in a statement.

The detainees used minors “to avoid suspicion and even to hide the drugs on its infants,” police said in a statement that said that members of the organization “flying from South America with drug amounts ranging from 1 to 5 kilos. “

Among the detainees – some of whom are Dominicans – figure a Spanish couple, arrested with a kilo and a half of cocaine in Amsterdam-Schiphol airport, which had concealed part of the drug in the trunk of his son, hidden between diapers.

Some members of the network of drug dealers living in Zaragoza, northern Spain, the statement said.
