Units of the Colombian Navy seized 196 kilograms of cocaine aboard a “Corvina” type vessel which was moored in Buenaventura – Valle del Cauca.

 

With the help of the Pacific Coast Guard, they managed to locate the vessel and perform an inspection. The Navy found an iron cylinder torpedo hidden under the nets aboard the vessel and 196 packages of drugs hidden inside. According to preliminary information, the cylinder was supposed to be transported on a cargo ship to Central America.
