Cocaine found - hidden among avocados

In a warehouse in Velez-Malaga, earlier this month, a haul of cocaine with a street value of around €160 million was found. The cocaine was hidden among avocados on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Led by the Unit against Drugs and Organised Crime (Udyco), police officers stormed a ship by surprise after being tipped off that it transported the Class A narcotic.

Two Spaniards, a Moroccan and Romanian were arrested in connection with the raid. They are being held in custody.

According to an article on¸ the drug had come from South America and into Spain through the port of Algeciras in the Campo de Gibraltar. It was then taken to a fruit and vegetable company in Axarquia where it was hidden among avocados before being driven to Velez-Malaga.
