Customs Nabs 100 Kilo Cocaine Load

Swedish Customs officers confiscated an enormous shipment of cocaine weighing in at 100 kilos, Swedish Radio News reports. The cargo, worth over 12 million US dollars, was hidden inside a container from Ecuador packed with frozen broccoli.

But the Swedish agents can’t take the credit for discovering the load—that honor goes to the German police, who swapped the cocaine for sugar while their Swedish colleagues lay in wait to nab the men who picked up the delivery.
