Colombia’s Army and Navy on Monday arrested a man who was carrying 390 kilograms of cocaine in a go-fast boat.
The cocaine was to be transferred by a 30 meter long speedboat from the port-town of Mingueo on the Carribean coast.
Newspaper El Espectador reported that when the suspected drug trafficker aboard the boat saw the army he attempted to swim away, only to be caught by Colombia’s navy.
Authorities suspect the drug was en route to Central America where the price of such quantities of the drug could reach up to $2 million.
Along with the cocaine, the army also seized two pieces of equipment used for off-shore communication and equipment used for navigation.
