...apparently the 560 pounds of cocaine stuffed in it made it play a little off-key!

Colombia police find cocaine stuffed in off-key piano


Associated Press


CARTAGENA, Colombia — When a grand piano played an off-key note, drug police in this Caribbean port opened it up and found some 560 pounds of cocaine stuffed inside.

The piano was part of a shipment of household items originating in the capital of Bogota and destined for Panama, police said in a statement Monday.

Authorities were investigating, but had made no arrests. The drugs' value was estimated at $5 million.

Agents in Cartagena noticed the piano was suspiciously heavy and decided to tap some keys, only to find the sound quality seemed strange, the statement said. The cocaine was discovered packed into various recesses of the instrument.

Colombia produces about 90 percent of the cocaine consumed in the United States, most of which is trafficked through Mexico and Central America.
