The Colombian navy on Wednesday confiscated almost a ton of cocaine from two boats in the Caribbean Sea, near the mouth of the Magdalena River.
A navy press statement reported that “in a coordinated operation between the navy and the DAS [Colombia’s intelligence and security agency],” 906 kilos of cocaine were confiscated and seven men arrested. The cocaine is estimated at a worth of $22 million on the international black market.
Communication and navigation equipment and fuel was also found on the boats.
This year, the Colombian navy has confiscated over 55 tons of cocaine.
