Diego doctor in cocaine catch

Bogota: Colombian doctor Mauricio Vergara, who helped Argentine football legend Diego Maradona lose weight last year, has been arrested in the southeastern city of Cali with 2kg of cocaine in his possession, police sources said Wednesday.

Vergara was arrested by drugs squad officers at the airport in Cali, 515 km southeast of the capital Bogota, just before he attempted to board a flight destined for Buenos Aires with a stop-off in Panama.

“The cocaine was found in the case of a camera that he was carrying in his luggage and in a false bottom to a briefcase in which he had his personal computer,” said Cali police chief colonel Alvaro Caro. (AFP)
