MOSCOW (Sputnik) — German customs officers seized an Ecuadorian shipment of over 90 pounds of cocaine bound for Russia, the Customs Investigation Office said in a statement late on Wednesday.
Inspectors discovered 35 packets with drugs in carton boxes used to transport bananas. The load was found at the northern port city of Bremerhaven back in April, according to the statement.
The customs authority said the shipment could have fetched more than 6 million euros ($6.5 million) on the black market. Investigators are working to determine where it was expected to change hands.
