Police tout ‘biggest cocaine bust in Denmark’s history’

South Jutland Police announced on Tuesday that six people had thus far been arrested in an ongoing investigation into what police said was the biggest confiscation of cocaine ever in Denmark, The Local reports.

Police in July 2015 confiscated 310 kilos of cocaine that was discovered at an Esbjerg business.

The confiscated cocaine was of such pure quality that police believe it could have been cut into as much as 1,200kg and sold at a street value of up to 900 million kroner ($131 million, 120 million euros). The South Jutland Police thus characterized the confiscation as the largest in Denmark’s history.
