Police say two suitcases carried by a woman who was about to fly from Chile to Spain were made of cocaine.

Detective Leandro Morales at the Santiago airport says the drug "was not hidden in the luggage. This time the suitcases were the drug."

Morales tells The Associated Press that the suitcases were made of a substance combining cocaine with resin and glass fiber.

He said Tuesday a "chemical process" could be used to separate out the drug.

The officer says the suitcases were heavier than their contents.

The 26-year-old Argentine woman was arrested.
