September 23 , 2013
Cops at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport discovered 1.3 tons of cocaine packed in 30 suitcases on a plane from Venezuela. The drugs are believed to have been meant for sale and had a street value of around $270M.
The drugs were found earlier in September but the incident was announced only yesterday. Reports suggest that the suitcases filled with the drugs were not registered to any of the passengers in the plane but six people, involved in drug smuggling were arrested.
France's Interior Minister called it the biggest drug haul in the history of Paris.
