More than $1 mill in cocaine was found hidden in boxes of bananas at 3 grocery stores
 

 
Thu August 22, 2019



(CNN) Authorities are trying to figure out how bricks of cocaine worth more than $1 million wound up in banana shipments delivered to three grocery stores in Washington state.

The drugs were found Sunday at Safeway stores in Woodinville, Bellingham and Federal Way.

Produce workers at the Woodinville store were putting the bananas out on the sales floor when they saw something strange, said Sgt. Ryan Abbott with the King County Sheriff's Office.

"One of the boxes had brown paper in it, which caught their attention and then they looked further and found these bricks," Abbott said. "They called the police and we went out there and it ended up being 22 kilos of cocaine with a street value of $550,000."

That's almost 50 pounds of cocaine.

The cocaine was surrounded by ordinary boxes of bananas, which were stuck together for shipment, Abbott said.

"We're still trying to determine where it all came from. That's under investigation. We do know it was all shipped from a central warehouse, but we don't know where it originated yet, so that's a work in progress," he said.

Bellingham Police Lt. Claudia Murphy told CNN affiliate KOMO that 23 kilograms (50.7 pounds) of cocaine were found hidden in a box of bananas at a Bellingham Safeway.

"I know that Safeway has been great and they went through every single box in their warehouse and all of their stores just to make sure there's no other issues," Abbott said.

He said he's never heard of anything like this happening -- especially not at three stores on the same day.

"We see cocaine out here, but we don't see this large amounts and we don't see it in Safeway and we don't see it in banana boxes," he said.

It's not the first time bananas have been used to smuggle cocaine.

In April, German authorities found hundreds of kilograms of cocaine, worth around €25 million ($28 million), that had been shipped to Aldi stores.

Last year Texas authorities discovered $18 million worth of cocaine hidden in bananas that had been donated to the Texas Department of Corrections.

God dam. Why can't sh*t like this happen to me. fu*k. They better give those workers a raise cause I wouldn't have said sh*t.

I wonder if someone took at least one brick. Or if a shipment went to another store and those workers ain't say sh*t and just took the whole shipment.

Somebody fu*ked waaaay up.

I wouldnt have had a choice but to turn it in. I have no idea how to get rid of a million dollars worth of coke. You gotta know ppl to move that kind of weight and then you gotta hope you dont get your head took off.

As popular as cocaine is and as many of these stories I see, I never see people doing cocaine,like ever. And I’m outside at functions in clubs moving around. I’ve never seen someone doing coke

You don't have to sell it if you find it. I'd probably be fired 6 months afterwards. Being it's just a grocery store job having Coke stashes would be the only thing to motivate me to come to work. I'm wearing them tinted safety glasses everyday.

Lol, it ain't like the movies bro. People do coke in front of and around people they know/trust or are trying to fu*k with. sh*t, depending on your financial status you might not be around anyone that can afford to do coke...

I know plenty of guys/girls that do that sh*t and they keep it on the low low. sh*t, they be trying to hide it from me sometimes because I don't do it lol. I don't pass any judgement so I think that puts them at ease.

Yeah but I think I someone out it there for safekeeping. If you sell that sh*t, the person might've come back & see it gone, then sh*t would go left.

I'm not bout that life. I wouldn't know where to start or what to do with bricks of Coca. The best I could do is call some of the homies I know who used to slang back in the day and put them on. I sold weed in high school but that's about it.
