After an exhaustive follow-up, the Drug Enforcement Administration and Colombian authorities captured the individuals transporting the drug in two vessels that sailed from Venezuela and Colombia. They were destined for the coasts of Jamaica and Costa Rica.
Administration for Drug Control ( DEA) and Narcotics Division of the National Police of Colombia captured 10 people when carrying a total of 5,610 kilograms of cocaine in two boats from Venezuela bound for the coast of Jamaica and Colombia .
The seizure occurred in two parts. In the first, seven Venezuelan citizens were arrested, carrying 4,200 kilograms of cocaine in a vessel that had sailed from the Castilletes (Guajira) and Cojoro sectors in Venezuela .
The second procedure was carried out on another ship in the Boca Chica sector near Costa Rica. In the operation, three people of Colombian nationality were captured, who began the journey from the coast of Puerto de Merizalde in Cauca.
The union of forces and cooperation between anti-narcotics agencies was key to preventing nearly 13 million new doses from invading the Caribbean Islands and the United States.
Similarly, drug trafficking finances were blocked at 78 million 150 thousand dollars.
So far it is unknown if the confiscation in international waters has any relationship with a drug cartel.
It is expected that in the coming hours, the authorities in Colombia will give more information about the operation and about those behind large distributions of the drug along the Caribbean coast.
