Autumn is finally here, as are its signature fruits — plus some coke. The Associated Press reports: “Federal agents say they seized more than 360 pounds of cocaine found in a shipment of Costa Rican pumpkins and squash at the Port of Philadelphia.” The $6 million stash, found hidden “in thin packages lining the inside of the boxes,” was reportedly “destined to a distributor in New York City.” We can only assume this is the guy.
