Police stopped a truck in the very heart of San José and discovered what they said was 40 kilos of cocaine.
The Fuerza Pública said the incident took place near the main offices of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social. They said they approached the vehicle when they thought the driver looked nervous.
A 40-year old man with the last names of Rojas Prendas was detained. The Policía de Control de Drogas arrived to verify the contents of the 40 packages in the rear of the truck.
