Anyone who joins the anti-drug police better be prepared to do some heavy lifting. The Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas stopped another small boat filled with drugs early Thursday, and somebody has to move those 164 packages.
Earlier this week there was more than a ton of marijuana confiscated in the Caribbean. Again, Ministerio de Seguridad Pública personnel has to do the moving. In fact, the Guardacostas or the anti-drug police have confiscated about 10 tons of cocaine already this year. There were eight boats with cocaine and four with marijuana, the ministry said.
The latest arrests took place off Cabo Blanco and involved four persons. The cocaine, of course, was headed north.
