Even in Colorado 42 kilos of marijuana is enough to attract the attention of law enforcement. But if a driver declines to stop at a checkpoint, flees in his vehicle and then collides with another car, police interest is heightened.
So Fuerza Pública officers found a man with the last name of Dennis in his car in a ditch where it ended up after the accident in Guápiles. Officers also said they noticed two suitcases with some type of packages in the trunk. So they called the anti-drug investigators.
Police said they counted 10 such packages and weighed out a bit more than 42 kilos of marijuana.
But there was more trouble for the driver. He produced a Jamaican passport, and the Dirección General de Migración said that his last recorded entry to the country was in May 2008.
