Vegetable Dealers

Perhaps that’s not so novel, but if you take a look at this Tampa Bay news station’s page, the vegetables that they were using were hundreds of 1-inch long lima bean shaped containers (photos on the site).

Investigators say 18-year-old Eduardo Lorenzo and his uncle, 49-year-old Hector Ludena were smuggling cocaine from Peru by concealing the drugs inside of vegetables and other food products. Police originally arrested Lorenzo on November 6 for possession of a stolen firearm and possession of cocaine. Detectives were led to Ludena’s home, where a search of his residence turned up over a 1,000 grams of cocaine concealed inside the veggies. The street value of the drugs is believed to be about $90,000.
