Banana cocaine stash lands in shop

Banana crates at a Danish supermarket were full of cocaine

A consignment of smuggled drugs in banana boxes ended up at a Danish supermarket instead of on the streets.

Staff at the Coop chain got a big surprise when they opened crates from Columbia and found about 220 lbs of cocaine.

The powder was discovered in Aarhus, western Denmark, when workers noticed that some of the boxes were heavier than others.

A Coop spokesman said more bags with white powder were found later in a separate shipment from Colombia at a central dispatch depot in Copenhagen.

The company has contacted its Colombian supplier. Police are investigating, but have not made any arrests.
