Vargas went to greater lengths to hide the drugs as he scrawled an autograph of the diminutive Argentine to make the photo more authentic.
The Colombian was detained at the local precinct of Sabanalarga, in the northern region of Galapa, which is mostly known as coffee country, and is now waiting for an audience with a judge, where he will be formally charged.
