Special fruit from Colombia - level 2

Special fruit from Colombia - level 2

13-09-2013 06:00

Drug dealers are very creative, especially when it comes to hiding their drugs.

However, police in Colombia saw through their trick and discovered more than one ton of cocaine. The cocaine was inside fake plastic limes, which were in boxes with the real fruit.

All 400 boxes with the drug were worth 45 million euros. The ship with them was stopped and the drugs taken.

Difficult words: see through (discover something bad), fake (not real), lime (green fruit similar to lemon).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
