HUNTS POINT -

Police stopped a tractor-trailer in the Bronx Friday that was carrying $10 million worth of cocaine.

Officials say they stopped the vehicle as it pulled into the Hunts Point Food Market disguised as a fruit delivery truck.

Inside the truck was about 70 kilos of cocaine, with an estimated street value of around over $10 million, according to investigators.

According to the Port Authority, the concealed contraband was sniffed out by a K-9 named Balu.

A search of the rest of the truck only turned up coconuts, papayas and oregano.

So far one person has been taken into custody.
