300 Kilos of Cocaine Seized

Costa Rican security forces seized a shipment of 300 kilos of cocaine, valued at U.S. $3 million, which was hidden in the false bottom of a container headed for Guatemala. They also arrested the driver, a Guatemalan.

Initial investigations show that the action would be a serious blow to drug trafficking organizations in Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Colombia who move drugs in cargo transport units which are also loaded with products such as crackers, soap, and food, in order to mislead authorities.

The seizure took place in the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose and in the towns of Alajuela and Uruca, where the organization has wineries.
