After a tip from a greengrocer in the German federal state of Brandenburg, German police seized almost 660 kilograms of cocaine worth about €50 million in a shipment of bananas. The officers found blocks of white substance hidden among fruits in the cargo of bananas. The first test for cocaine came in positive.
The drugs were wrapped in plastic, with each package weighing about a kilogram, the police said. This is the largest batch of cocaine found in Brandenburg. As the police found out, the cargo was delivered to Brandenburg by mistake. The shipment was heading from Colombia to Germany by sea. The investigation is ongoing.
