POLICE in Sevilla have seized 1000kg of cocaine, hidden in bananas, the city’s largest ever haul of the drug.
Boxes of the fruit, in a lorry, were used to smuggle the narcotic, and are now being kept at the police headquarters.
A total of three people have so far been arrested following the bust, the size of which has only previously been seen at sea.
Udyco anti-drug officers from Sevilla and Malaga forces were behind the record raid, a full press conference on which is to be held tomorrow.
The specialist agents involved coordinated with the Anti-drug Prosecutor’s Office of the Campo de Gibraltar.
