POLICE have intercepted Spain’s second biggest ever cocaine haul on the Costa del Sol this morning.
An astonishing SIX TONNES of the drug were found by plain-clothed agents hidden among bananas at the Santa Teresa Industrial estate this morning.
The haul, believed to be the second-biggest in Europe’s history, had a street value of €360 million.
The find came following a joint investigation between the Udyco organised crime unit, the Special Response Group against Organized Crime (Greco) of the Policia Nacional, and the Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Guardia Civil.
As soon as the record stash was found, scores of camouflaged police cars and swat vans stormed the scene and cut off all areas.
The cocaine was hidden in a shipment of bananas from Colombia and were found in an old warehouse unit which had been divided into two halves.
One room was used by a man as a warehouse, while the other, after several years of inactivity, had been rented out just a week ago.
The second half, belonging to the suspects, held a refrigerated truck, vans and a Chrysler Voyager minivan.
Three people from an import company have been arrested while another two were cuffed in France.
