Cocaine haul found in weekly food shop in Aargau

Two people have been arrested after customs officers found more than two kilogrammes of cocaine in what appeared to be an unremarkable bag of food shopping.

The two – the driver and a passenger of a car – were stopped by customs officers when they crossed the border from Germany into Switzerland a week ago, according to a report by the Federal Office of Customs and Border Security.

The alleged drugs smugglers had appeared to do little to disguise the cocaine.

A sniffer dog uncovered the drugs hidden in a package under a net of oranges. Bottled water, eggs, potatoes and bread were also in the shopping bags.

The search took place in the canton of Aargau.
