Employees at supermarket chain Coop in Aarhus, Denmark got the surprise of their lives when they opened boxes of bananas only to discover they were stuffed with bags of cocaine. I bet that wasn’t a ‘two for one’ offer! The 100kg of Colombian ‘marching powder’ was marched straight off to the police station where a high old-time was had by all. The drug traffickers must be pulling their hairs out by the roots! Now if only they had used The Royal Mail the drugs would have got to the right address, but not necessarily in the right century!
Aldi workers at supermarkets in Berlin found huge shipments of cocaine hidden in banana crates at five different branches. Police recovered 140kg of cocaine worth up to £5 million. Clearly the Columbian drug traffickers haven’t had any better luck with Deutsche Post DHL, the world’s leading mail and logistics Group. Perhaps in future your favourite brand of Columbian marching powder will be delivered by mule?
Czech Republic police have seized £27million worth of cocaine in a shipment of bananas at a Prague supermarket. What is it with bananas? Perhaps they put sniffer dogs off the scent? Personally I hate bananas and I can’t afford cocaine!
