Italian police thwarted drug-smugglers who sliced hundreds of coffee beans open, stuffed them with cocaine and carefully encased them with dark brown tape.
The perps might have gotten away with it too … if it wasn’t for that darn John Wick.
According to police, they became suspicious of the package containing the coffee beans when someone noticed the name on it was Santino D’Antonio … a mafia boss villain in “John Wick: Chapter 2” as well as the third film in the franchise.
The coked-up beans were shipped from Medellin in Colombia to Milan’s Malpensa airport, and all in all … the 2kg package contained 150g of cocaine powder via about 500 beans.
The package was addressed to a tobacco shop in Florence, and cops busted the 50-year-old man who came to collect it.
Italian police named their operation “Caffe’ Scorretto” — which means Improper Coffee, which plays off the name of the country’s popular drink, ‘”Caffe’ corretto” … corrected coffee.
