Over $1 billion worth of cocaine seized

     It was supposed to be soybeans entering Germany two weeks ago. But after a routine inspection, German customs officials found more than 200 duffel bags containing cocaine.

Officials said Friday that the duffel bags contained hundreds of packets with more than $1 billion worth of cocaine. They were confiscated by port customs officials in Hamburg, Germany, which houses the third-largest port in Europe – and the largest in the country.

The shipment was being transported from Montevideo, Uruguay, to Antwerp, Belgium, before it was discovered by German officials.

The 211 duffel bags contained 5 tons, or nearly 10,000 pounds, of cocaine in total. They were packed in 4,200 sachets.

Assuming that the cocaine could be cut to triple the amount for street sale, officials estimated its street value at 1 billion euros (approximately $1.1 billion).

The drugs, according to Hamburg customs officials, were already destroyed β€œamid strict secrecy and extensive security precautions.”

It was the country's biggest single seizure of cocaine to date.
