Spanish agents nab 708Ks of cocaine from Dominican Republic, Efe

Santo Domingo.- Spanish agents seized 708 kilos of cocaine hidden in a container full of coconuts from Dominican Republic after its arrival at Barcelona Port on Friday, revealed Harbor Security chief Alejandro Anelho, quoted by Efe.

The Spanish Civil Guard official said the haul, among the agency’s biggest drug busts, was made on March 12 during an internal traffic check of a truck as it was about to exit the port.

He said police haven’t made any arrests thus far because the traffickers hid the cocaine in the container unbeknownst to the shipping company.

The Civil Guard added that the shipment originated in the Dominican Republic, from where another load of nearly 1,000 kilos of cocaine were seized last year at Barcelona port, aboard a freighter from Brazil.
