Cocaine with Lionel Messi branding seized by Peruvian police

More than $91 million worth of cocaine was confiscated by Peruvian police after they found it in squid filets.

Peruvian police announced they seized 1,417 kilos of cocaine Wednesday that was packaged with images of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Not only was Messi's face plastered all over the packaging, but his name, the Barcelona logo and the seal of the King of Spain was also depicted, Peruvian officials said in a news release.

The seized cocaine reportedly has $85 million in street value.

However, that's not the strangest part. The cocaine was found stuffed in nearly 1,300 squid filets that were being prepped to be shipped to Belgium.

No one has been arrested for the shipment yet.
