The lengths these drug dealers will go to..Pineapples filled with cocaine seized at market

Pineapples filled with cocaine seized at port destined for Spanish market 

Cocaine with a street value of about £235,000 has been found hidden inside fresh pineapples by Spanish police.

The 67kg (148lb) haul was seized at Madrid's main wholesale fruit and vegetable market, MercaMadrid.

Cylinders of the narcotic were neatly slotted into the hollowed-out fruit skin and covered in yellow wax to look like pineapple flesh.


Police said the wax was also used to conceal "odors of the chemical products which the drug contains and avoid its detection".

Officers described the pineapples as: "Perfectly hollowed out and stuffed with compact cylinders," with each fruit containing 800-1,000g of cocaine.

They had to examine them all individually, smashing open each suspect pineapple to reveal the stash.

It would not show the end, so here it is:

Dozens of fruits in the shipment - which had arrived at the Portuguese port of Setubal from Costa Rica before being transported to Spain - contained the cylinders of cocaine.

Spanish police first became aware of the operation after busting similar drug operations using the same method of shipment in Portugal and Spain.

Seven people have been arrested under suspicion of being involved in a smuggling ring - three in Madrid and four in Barcelona.

this is just unreal, and a waste of a delicious pineapple too.  Makes you wonder what they will try to tamper with next.  This could end up being quite dangerous if not controlled.

Yes, the pineapples looked tempting and yet, this is what they had inside...

What would they not think up, in order to continue their contraband?
