PRAGUE (Reuters) – The Czech police seized a large shipment of cocaine hidden among bananas delivered to several supermarkets, the police and local media said on Friday.

“Supermarket workers found moulded cocaine cubes in boxes with bananas this afternoon,” the police said on Twitter, where it also posted pictures of some of the seized cocaine.

“The information about the shipment leads outside the Czech Republic, therefore we will use international police and justice cooperation,” the police said, without further details.

Czech public television reported that roughly half a tonne of the drug was discovered, estimating the value at 1.5 billion crowns ($63.87 million).
