The discovery of $8.2 million worth of cocaine hidden inside boxes of bananas has Aldi employees in Germany puzzled. 

According to the New York Daily News, staff at five branches in and around the Berlin area found a combined 308 pounds of cocaine inside of seven cases of bananas beginning Monday morning. The bananas arrived in Hamburg, then were taken to the Moabit section of Berlin.

Using their most rigorous logic, authorities deduced that it was through "logistical error" that the cocaine ended up in grocery stores instead of its intended destination. Local authorities are touting this as the nation's largest drug seizure since 1999.
