Does it still count as one of your five a day?

Over €1.4 million worth of cocaine has been found in a crate of bananas by a Tesco worker in England.

The store, based in Wokingham, Berkshire, notified the police immediately when they found the problem with the shipment, which include five bags of the drug. Experts say the value of each bag could be worth up to €350,000 depending on its purity.

Speaking to the Mirror, a source claimed that “The boxes of bananas were piled up in a metal cage and being unwrapped ready to put on the shelves. The young man spotted the box with red tape and decided to take a closer look.

“He opened the box and saw the packets underneath the bananas. He was understandably shocked. You don’t need to be a genius to know what it is.”

More than 250,000 boxes of bananas are imported from the Americas every week from Tesco alone, and with €15 million worth of cocaine found in Lidl bananas earlier this year, it seems like there's a lot more than potassium in those crates.
