German police seize 1.5 tons of cocaine hidden in Guyana rice

Authorities in the German port city of Hamburg have found over €300 million worth of cocaine in a cargo ship container from Guyana containing rice.

According to Deutsche Welle,  Hamburg authorities discovered 1.5 tons of cocaine in a freight container, one of the largest quantities ever seized in the northern German port city, a spokesperson for the Customs Investigations Office said yesterday.

Rice from this country has been used on several occasions to conceal cocaine.  Some rice exporters from this country have previously been implicated in such shipments.
