Charlie-qita anyone?

14 tons of cocaine has been found in boxes of bananas seized in Holland and Belgium.

All of it originates from Colombia, 11 tons coming from Turbo, a port town in Antioquia, alone (yeah, that's right, Turbo).

A news report from local radio station Caracol, said that despite the practice being common, there has been an increase in cocaine smuggled via banana shipments.

Cocaine has now been seized in banana shipments to Germany, Spain, Costa Rica and Ecuador.

We wonder what Gordon Ramsay would have to say about this?

Does this ring a bell? It's 'cause of this Tesco-related discovery.
