    Cocaine valued at 25m found in banana delivery



    Packets of cocaine were found in plastic bananas within the fruit


    Cocaine with an estimated street value of 25m has been found hidden in a consignment of bananas from Colombia.

    Scotland Yard said 150kg of the drug was found packed into plastic bananas following an "intelligence-led" operation.

    Officers said they forced entry into a Kent warehouse they had been monitoring on 10 July and found the cocaine hidden amongst real fruit.

    Four men were later arrested in London and Kent and remain in police custody.

    The Metropolitan Police said the bananas arrived at Dover at about 06:00 BST on 10 July and were taken to Oast Park Trading Estate in Hartlip, Kent.

    The force said the lorry driver was not implicated.

    A 48-year-old man was later arrested in Kent.

    Police also arrested three Colombian men, aged 36, 39 and 46, outside an internet cafe in Stockwell, south London

    150k=150,000g

    150,000 x 50 (quid a gram street) = 7.5 million.

    So bollocks it is - unless they assume it will be cut about 3:1

    Totally unimaginative reporting.

    "COLOMBIAN IMMIGRANTS USE DOLE TO IMPORT COKE"

    Or were they Chiquita bananas?
