Police said the wax was also used to conceal “odours of the chemical products which the drug contains and avoid its detection”.

Officers described the pineapples as, “Perfectly hollowed out and stuffed with compact cylinders,” with each fruit containing 800-1,000g of cocaine.

Dozens of fruits in the shipment  which had arrived at the Portuguese port of Setubal from Costa Rica before being transported to Spain  contained the cylinders of cocaine.

Spanish police first became aware of the operation after busting similar drug operations using the same method of shipment in Portugal and Spain.

Seven people have been arrested under suspicion of being involved in a smuggling ring  three in Madrid and four in Barcelona.

Drug trafficking cases are on a high note in the recent times.
