A shipment of narcotics was ripe for the picking when a Santa Barbara CHP K-9 sniffed out the drugs after they arrived in a box of bananas at Port Hueneme.

The Santa Barbara CHP posted the bust on its Facebook page Tuesday, saying K-9 Officer EDY uncovered 11.85 kilos of cocaine hidden in a box of bananas at the port in Ventura County.

Officer EDY assisted U.S. Customs agents in the bust. No information about a suspect or arrest was released.

The photos show Office EDY posing next to 11 brown packages labeled "Dior."

In its post, the Santa Barbara CHP wrote: "After he found the drugs, he had a belly rub and a picture. All we could say is, good Boyyyyyyy!"
