A banana delivery to a chain of German supermarkets has sparked a police investigation when staff found packets of cocaine inside the boxes instead of fruit.
A joint investigation from the Berlin police found a total of 386 kilograms of the drug had been delivered – apparently in error -- to 14 different Aldi supermarkets in and around the capital. The police presented the haul in front of the country's media Monday and said that the packets had a combined value of 15 million euros ($16.7 million) and was Berlin's biggest cocaine haul, according to local media.
"Apparently there was a logistical mistake somewhere along the line," police spokesman Stefan Redlich told the French news agency AFP. Investigators are now trying to determine the intended destination for the narcotics which were originally sent from Colombia, according to AFP.
This is not the first time such an incident has occurred in the capital, however. In January 2014, Germany's The Local news publication reported that Aldi workers discovered 140 kilograms of the same drug also hidden in crates of bananas and which had a street value of around six million euros.
