Croatian police have revealed they have confiscated more than half a ton of cocaine hidden in fruit containers in an Adriatic Sea port. It is said to be one of the biggest seizures ever in Croatia. With the help of sniffer dogs, police discovered the cocaine two weeks ago in the port of Ploce. State officials discovered the 575 kilograms of cocaine during a random search of the containers that had arrived from South America.
There have been no arrests so far, they said. Police estimated the street value of the cocaine at more than €57 million. No other details have been revealed as an international probe is ongoing. Croatian police said the cocaine was destined for other countries in the region.
