Fuerza Pública officers have confiscated another load of counterfeit liquor and uncovered a storage location for the same commodity.

Officers said they stopped a truck that was carrying 26 cases of either adulterated or bootlegged liquor in Hatillo Thursday. Employees of the Fabrica Nacional de Licores, the state alcohol monopoly, also participated in the siezure.

The bottles contained false labels with a high concentration of ethanol, police said.

The storage facility was located in Sagrada Familia where 192 bottles were confiscated. That confiscation was by the San José police and the Ministerio de Salud.
