Hundreds of kilos of cocaine have been found stashed within – wait for it – fresh pineapples!
Spanish and Portuguese authorities obtained a staggering 745 kilos of devils dandruff neatly packed within the fruity transports, and we’re gobsmacked at the ingenuity, to be quite honest.
The international operation was reportedly run by two Colombian brothers who had laboratories in the municipalities of Pinto and Nuevo Baztan near the Spanish capital. 9 members of their crew were arrested at the scene, and authorities shut down a lab and seized €400,000.
BBC News reported that the raid came following a long standing investigation between Spain and Portugal. The Portuguese side of the investigation released a statement on the raid, saying “this organised international group had repeatedly brought large quantities of cocaine to the European continent.”
