Finance police in conjunction with customs agents seized a super sized shipment of cocaine concealed inside a container of bananas from South America, in the port of Gioia Tauro

A series of information sharing between finance police and the Customs Anti-Fraud squad  of Gioia Tauro  led to the location of a large drug load,  using scanners, they conducted a check of  the suspicious containers and discovered cocaine disguised as bananas from Ecuador.

Police say if the load landed in the mafia controlled black market it would have earned about 43 million for the Italian  ‘Ndrangheta  mob operating in   Gioia Tauro
