Spiked 1

Tiptoe through the tulips, the old song advises, but in the Netherlands, watch out for the narcotics.

Police in the city of Aalsmeer _ on the outskirts of Amsterdam, where the world's largest daily auction of cut flowers takes place _ said Wednesday they had recently seized a major drugs stash "on a number of pallets of flowers that were intended for export."

In all, they destroyed 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine and amphetamines, and another 400 kilograms (880 pounds) of marijuana and hashish with a street value of more than €5 million (US$6.9 million).

Three suspects were arrested.
The drugs were discovered July 10 when a delivery service noticed there was a large discrepancy between the expected and actual weight of the pallets.
