1,600 pounds of Cocaine found inside Pineapples

A Colombian drug smuggling ring has been busted by Spanish and Portugese police, who seized 745kg of cocaine hidden inside fresh pineapples. The Iberian police forces arresting nine members of a gang that transported the drug from South America. They said a joint operation that unfolded over several months led to the arrests and broke up an international smuggling ring led by Colombians. Also seized was 400,000 euros ($489,000) in cash.
The Iberian Peninsula is a major entry point for cocaine and other drugs to Europe, either directly from Latin America or via North and West Africa.
