Columbian Cocaine Found in Banana Shipment to Danish Supermarket

That’s not what we ordered...

A Danish supermarket was confused and surprised to find packets of cocaine in a shipment from Columbia that was supposed to contain bananas.

Mistakes in orders are a common occurrence, but this deserves some kind of explanation.

In what was clearly a drug deal gone wrong or a mistaken address, the Danish grocery store Coop was shocked to find 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine in what they thought were shipments of bananas from Columbia, according to the Associated Press.

The powder was found last week when employees noticed that some of the boxes were heavier than others at the store in Aarhus, a city in western Denmark.

More white powder packages were found Wednesday in a separate shipment — also from Columbia — at a central dispatch facility in suburban Copenhagen, said Jens Juul, Coop’s spokesperson.

Juul reported to the Danish news agency Ritzau that they have contacted their Columbian supplier.

No arrests have been made yet, but police are investigating the incidents.
