Nicaraguan Army Seizes Close to Two Tons of Cocaine

first_img The Nicaraguan Army seized at least two tons of cocaine and a speedboat from alleged drug traffickers in an area of the Caribbean, a Military spokesperson announced at a press conference on March 5. Rear Admiral Roger González, commander of the Nicaraguan Navy, explained that following a pursuit on the high seas, the suspects threw part of the drugs overboard, abandoned the remainder in the Eduardoño boat in which they were travelling, and fled. González added that the drugs were in 95 bags of 25 packages each. “We’re talking about over two tons,” and the seizure may be “one of the heaviest blows” struck against drug trafficking so far in 2012. The anti-drug operation took place in the early morning of March 4, in the sector known as Punta de Águila, 35 km south of Bluefields, in the South Atlantic Autonomous Region, he specified. The authorities were continuing to pursue the alleged drug traffickers, who escaped inland after abandoning the boat in an area of reefs and banks, González added.
