$18 MILLION WORTH OF COCAINE FOUND IN BOXES OF BANANAS THAT WERE TO BE DONATED

FREEPORT, TX

Two sergeants from Texas’ Department Of Criminal Justice found more than they bargained for when they went to pick up 45 boxes of bananas that were being donated to the department. As the sergeants began picking up the boxes, they quickly noticed that something wasn’t quite right. People Magazine (@people) reported, there was nearly $18 million worth of cocaine packaged in with the fruit.

“Sometime life gives you lemons. Sometimes it gives you bananas.” The department joked on their official Facebook page after the discovery.

The cocaine was hidden beneath the bundles of bananas. The sergeants contacted U.S. customs, who ran a test on the white substance and confirmed that it was cocaine. 540 packages were discovered with an estimated street value of just under $18 million. It’s not clear who sent the cocaine or who was supposed to pick it up. One thing is clear though…..somebody f*cked up! Big time!
