More than $19 million worth of cocaine was found inside a shipment of pineapples that arrived at a Georgia port from Colombia, authorities said.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the Port of Savannah came across the shipment in November, the agency said in a statement released last week. They found 450 packages that weighed over 1,150 pounds hidden within the fresh produce.
“This was an outstanding interception of narcotics by our CBP officers, “said Lisa Beth Brown, Savannah Area Port Director for the agency. “This seizure is a positive enforcement action against drug smuggling organizations and highlights the important work our officers do each day to stop illegal activity at our borders and ports of entry.”
