The Colombian National Police’s narcotics division recently intercepted 466kg (1,027lbs) of cocaine in a consignment of banana chips that had Le Havre, France as its intended destination, W Radio reported. 

“Police discovered a container that contained 465 boxes full of fried bananas with rectangular packets that turned out to be cocaine hydrochloride,” Cartagena Metropolitan Police commander General Luis Poveda told the broadcaster.

The story reported that in a simultaneous operation on a road control between Cartagena and Bayunca, an individual was detained for carrying 46kg (101lbs) of the illicit substance in their vehicle.
