Colombian Navy Seizes 5 Mln Worth of Cocaine

The Colombian Navy managed to seize 160 kilograms of cocaine that were apparently transported aboard an Ecuadorian-flagged vessel.

 

Three Ecuadorian crew members aboard the vessel threw the packets into the sea and fled the scene when they noted the presence of the ship ARC “José María Palas” and the units of the Coast Guard Station in Tumaco.

After a chase the boat was intercepted and transferred with its crew to the Coast Guard Station in Tumaco.

The Coast Guard managed to recover four packages containing 160 packets of cocaine with a total worth of five million dollars.
