Greek raid turns up more than 4 tons of cannabis hidden in cupcake machine shipment
ATHENS, Greece - Authorities found more than four tons of cannabis hidden in a shipment of industrial cupcake-making machines in an April 16 raid.
A Greek financial crimes squad found the cannabis in a shipping container after they received a tip from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, according to a statement released on Thursday.
The shipping container came from Lebanon and was scheduled to be transported to Slovakia.
More than 4.3 tons of cannabis were found in a hidden compartment of a metal tank that was packed in with the three cupcake machines, Greek authorities said. The cannabis is worth about $40 million.
Greek authorities received help from the drug enforcement agency of Saudia Arabia in investigating the case.
