Cocaine stash worth $28m found in German grocer’s banana crates

Cocaine

The banana crates were delivered by ship from Latin America to six stores and a distribution warehouse in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Stores and warehouses in Germany operated by the discount supermarket chain Aldi have come under scrutiny.

“I am very sure that this is the largest amount of cocaine ever found in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,’’ a spokesperson for the criminal investigation office said.

Aldi outlets in other states around the country had also been questioned, but as of midday Thursday, no further cocaine finds had been reported, the Rostock prosecutors said.

In February, prosecutors in the southern state of Bavaria charged eight men with smuggling two tons of cocaine valued at close to 500 million dollars to Germany with banana crates shipped from Ecuador.
