The Brazilian police discovered 279.6 kilograms of cocaine hidden in a barn in Guaruja, Sao Paulo on Tuesday. They believe the drugs were meant for Amsterdam.

A 44 year old man was arrested in the bust, RTL Nieuws reports. He told the police that he was paid 300 thousand real - about 78 thousand euros - to store the drugs.

This is the second large Netherlands-related cocaine bust in Brazil this month. Early in August 48 year old Dutchman Raymond K., also known as Captain Coke, was arrested with more than 600 kilos of cocaine in his sailboat.
