Personnel of the Counternarcotics Directorate of the National Police gave a hard blow against the drug trafficking organizations, after operations completed in two vessels that were in the maritime port of Barranquilla.

In the second operation performed in the bow area next to the starboard of the vessel, police units were able to find 4 kilos of cocaine camouflaged in ropes. The alkaloid had the shape of shoe soles and had as destination the city of Cartagena.
Cocaine had an approximate cost of 240 million pesos.
