DEA takes 4 Colombians nabbed near Dominican coasts with cocaine

SANTO DOMINGO.- Four Colombians arrested last week at sea on a boat with 1,000 packages of cocaine were taken to San Juan, Puerto Rico yesterday on a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), plane, after receiving the suspects escorted by National Drug Control Agency (DNCD) officials.

The DNCD said the foreigners, Aluchom Castro, Arechelleo Bocaleo Ruben Bucaria and Micton Sretellea, all with indigenous features, were escorted off a U.S. Coast Guard craft at the 27de Febrero Naval Base, in the capital, and taken to San Isidro Airbase.

DNCD press officer Roberto Lebron said the four Colombians, arrested August 20 during a joint operation 20 miles south of Dominican coasts, will be charged in a Puerto Rico court with drug trafficking of around 1,000 kilos of cocaine.
