Costa Rican police have seized 2.5 tons of cocaine at a cargo terminal in Moin, in the province of Limon, on the Caribbean coast.
Public Security Minister Jorge Torres reported Saturday that agents discovered and seized a total of 2.5 tons of drugs in a container of fruit that was supposedly leaving for Belgium.
The portfolio, in a message on the social network Twitter, has celebrated the “sure blows to drug trafficking”, since it has explained that in a few hours it has also prevented “the transfer of more than three tons of marijuana”.
“The police have weakened drug trafficking by seizing 5.5 tons of drugs in a matter of hours,” the statement reads.
In 2020, Costa Rican authorities confiscated in the same port in question nearly six tons of cocaine bound for Holland, in what was the largest drug bust in the country, reports dpa agency.
