(CNN) -- There was something odd about the 30 suitcases that showed up on a flight from Venezuela. The colorful bags weren't registered to any of the passengers on the plane.
When French officials opened them up, they discovered why -- 1.3 tons of pure cocaine were stuffed inside the anonymous bags.
The street value of the stash? About 200 million Euros, or $270 million.
The catch was made on September 11, but French authorities didn't publicize the find until Saturday.
