Cocaine Worth $19 Million Found in Pineapple Shipment

Border Patrol agents discovered and seized more than 1,000 pounds of cocaine estimated to be worth $19 million in a shipment of pineapples.

The 450 packages of weighing more than 500 kilograms arrived hidden among pineapples on a ship from Colombia in November, and a subsequent field test by the Office of Field Operations confirmed they contained cocaine.

“This seizure is a positive enforcement action against drug smuggling organizations and highlights the important work our officers do each day to stop illegal activity at our borders and ports of entry.”

No bananas anymore then…
