AMSTERDAM — Dutch supermarket staff recently found millions of euros worth of cocaine stashed in banana boxes as they were unpacking them, police said.

The drugs, 50kg of cocaine, had an estimated value of EUR 5-6 million, Reuters reported.

The drugs were found in supermarkets in the towns of Hoensbroek and Brunssum in the southern province of Limburg.

It was unclear how the cocaine ended up in the supermarkets.

"There probably must have been a logistic mistake," a police spokesman said, pointing out that a Colombian label indicated a South American origin for the drugs.
