67 kg Cocaine found in pineapples in Spain

Spanish police have seized 67 kg (148 pounds) of cocaine found inside dozens of hollowed-out pineapples at Madrid's main wholesale fruit and vegetable market.

The drugs were found among a shipment of pineapples that arrived in the Portuguese port of Setubal by ship from Costa Rica. Spain is the main entry point to Europe for cocaine from the continent, mostly from Colombia.
