Colombian anti-narcotics police said Sunday they have seized 9 tons of marijuana in the southwest of the country.
Colonel Carlos Enrique Rodriguez told media the drugs were found Saturday in a house near the village of Corinto, Cauca.
According to the police official, the drugs belonged to the FARC‘s 6th front and was meant for export.
Rodriguez said the drug bust is a significant blow to the finances of the guerrilla organization as the police estimated the street value of the marijuana at $15.3 million.
So far this year, the police claims to have seized 233 tons of marijuana.
