Hidden in banana shipment

1.5 tons of cocaine underway to Slovenia intercepted in Malta

Maltese customs officers have seized a record 1.5 tons of cocaine hidden in a container moving bananas from Colombia to Slovenia. The contraband, seized at Malta Freeport, is estimated to be worth €300 million.

According to the report, customs officers seized 50 bags containing 1,494 one-kilo wraps of cocaine onboard a ship bound for Koper, Slovenia. The case is being investigated by the Malta Police Narcotics Department.

Customs said the seizure is a record in terms of volume and value, much bigger than a 800-kilogram shipment of cocaine seized at the same port last month.
