Smuggling drugs in a suitcase is so yesterday.
Nine gang members have been arrested after police seized hundreds of kilograms of cocaine disguised in fresh pineapples, Business Insider reports. Police tell the publication that the findings are the result of an investigation that began in April of last year.
To be exact, 1,600 pounds of white stuff was pulled from the delicious fruit. The crew that loaded up the pineapple even went to the extent of coating the drugs with a yellow wax to resemble the inside of a pineapple, if one was accidentally smashed.
The shipment was found in Portugal and Spain after coming from South America. Apparently, the gang had the cocaine stored in Terrassa, Barcelona and transported it to Madrid laboratories every 15-20 days. Along with the discovery of the smuggle, feds busted a lab that found cocaine being cut with additives. Hydraulic presses, packaging machines and over 400,000 Euros in cash were also seized in the raid.
