Officials find cocaine in hollow tree

Thursday 21 February 2013

Customs officials in Guyana have discovered 314 kilos of cocaine hidden in hollowed-out trees which were destined for the Dutch market, news agency ANP reports.

The haul had a street value of €14m, ANP said. Several people have been arrested, including one Dutch national.

The director of the company which owned the wood, Guyana Timber Products, is on his way to the South American country to find out more, ANP said.

What a waste of a good beautiful tree, putting this nasty crap in them.
The 'Dutch market' sure seems to need a lot of coke.

Maybe the tree will grow more quickly, get a bad nosebleed, become paranoid & die.
