Anti-drug police intercept another load of cocaine

Another trucker has been picked up with a load of what authorities think is cocaine.

The trucker was stopped at a police checkpoint on the Interamericana Norte, and anti-drug police said they found 629 kilos of the white powder in the ice chest on his truck. He was in the business of delivering sea food.

The man, identified by the last names of Ríos Varela was remanded to six months of preventative detention after a session in the Juzgado Penal de San Ramón.
