Judicial agents, Fuerza Pública officers, the Servicio de Vigilancia Aérea and members of the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas confiscated perhaps as much as a ton of marijuana in a series of actions in the Limoncito section of Limón. Four vehicles were confiscated and arrests were made.
Agents have been tracking the illegal importation of marijuana on the Caribbean coast.
Thursday they found a large quantity of marijuana on the second floor of a dwelling, and Fuerza Pública officers found 20 sacks of marijuana when they stopped a vehicle.
The coordinated operation counted on air support from the security ministry aircraft, the law enforcement agencies said.
