One way to wake yourself up in the morning...

Italian police have found cocaine stuffed inside hundreds of coffee beans after opening a package addressed to Santino D’Antonio - aka the fictional bad guy from the second John Wick movie...

Investigators found more than 500 beans had been hollowed out, filled with cocaine and taped shut - totalling just over 130 grams of cocaine for the two kilogram shipment.

Despite how intricate these blokes got by individually filling the coffee beans with cocaine, they blew their cover by addressing the package to the movie villain.

According to a statement from the Guardia di Finanza financial police, the package arrived from Colombia to an airport in Milan and a customs officer decided to take a closer look once he read the label.

Police were then able to track the package to Florence in Italy where a 50-year-old man was arrested when caught attempting to retrieve the package from a local shop.

The man was registered as living in the Colombian city of Medellin - famously the former home of notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.

Maybe next time they'll come up with a better fake name.
