Aldi goes Bananas over Cocaine!


More than $A21 million dollars (15 million euros) worth of cocaine was found today in boxes of bananas delivered to Aldi supermarkets in Berlin and around Germany.

Staff working at 14 of the discount supermarkets reported the drugs hidden in the deliveries from Colombia, which police believe ended up at the stores by accident .

‘Apparently there was a logistical mistake somewhere along the line,’ police spokesman Stefan Redlich told AFP, adding that investigators were now trying to determine their intended destination.

He said the 386kg shipment was the biggest single cocaine find in the history of the German capital.

In a similar case in January 2014, Berlin supermarket workers discovered 140kg of the drug worth around six million euros also hidden in crates of bananas.
