Police in northern Greece claimed on Saturday that they recovered dozens of packets of cocaine stowed in containers filled with bananas transported from Latin America.

Police confiscated two suspect containers at the port of Piraeus and transported them to the port of Thessaloniki, where they discovered 100 “bricks” of hidden cocaine totalling 161 kilogrammes.

According to authorities, the narcotics, which would have been sold throughout Greece and other European nations, are worth around 3.2 million euros.

The shipment was discovered as part of an investigation conducted by Greece last month in collaboration with North Macedonian police and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.
