We’re barely two days into Fall and people are already using pumpkins for much more than a latte flavoring.


The Associated Press reports that a 360-pound stash of cocaine was discovered in a shipment of Costa Rican pumpkins and other squash in Philadelphia early last week. The drugs are rumored to have a street value of over $6 million dollars.

The gourds were destined for New York City but were seized after the U.S. Customs and Boarder Control discovered cocaine inside the squash. Officials claim this is the Philadelphia port’s eighth largest seizure to date.


With the release of Fetty Wap’s new album on Thursday, it’s always possible that stashing the drugs in a gourd typically used for making pie could be a tribute to his notorious “Trap Queen” line.
