Police find 745kg of cocaine stashed inside South American pineapples

Drug smugglers will not run out of ways to sneak their supply across the border. Now, they have resorted to hiding their narcotics inside of tropical fruit.

This week, a joint operation by Spanish and Portuguese authorities resulted in the seizure of 745 kilograms of cocaine concealed inside pineapples.

The Iberian police forces announced the big drug bust on Wednesday after arresting nine members of a gang that allegedly transported the drug from South America.

Aside from the 745kg of cocaine seized and the arrests, police also dismantled a laboratory where the drug was cut with additives. Police tell the publication that the findings are the result of an investigation that began in April of past year.

According to the scientists, the feathers of Caihong had pancake-shaped melanosomes akin to those of modern hummingbirds. Caihong juji was tiny, about the size of a duck, with a bony crest on its head and long, ribbon-like feathers.

The cocaine bundles were found dipped in yellow wax then packaged inside the hollowed skins of the spiny fruit.

The global operation was reportedly run by two Colombian brothers who had laboratories in the municipalities of Pinto and Nuevo Baztan near the Spanish capital.

According to a police press release, the gang stored their cocaine in Terrasa, Barcelona, before transporting it to their Madrid laboratories every 15-20 days.

Incredibly, this isn't the first time pineapples have been used to smuggle some blow across the Spanish border. What the hell did they do with all the insides of those pineapples?
