Guatemalan Police Seize Cocaine Shipment Bound for Mexico

GUATEMALA CITY A shipment of 300 kilos of cocaine bound from Guatemala to Mexico was seized and a truck driver arrested on smuggling charges, the National Civilian Police (PNC) said on Sunday.

The cocaine, which was worth $3.2 million, was seized Saturday night when officers searched a truck that was involved in an accident, the PNC said in a statement.

The driver, identified as 38-year-old Guatemalan citizen Dannis Lopez, hit a motorcyclist at kilometer 29 of the highway to the Pacific in Amatitlan and fled the accident scene.

The motorcyclist called police, who followed the truck until they were able to stop it.

A routine inspection turned up the narcotics, the PNC said.

The cocaine was bound for the border city of Tecun Uman, where it would be handed over to other people so it could be smuggled into Mexico, police said.

Investigators have not determined which cartel the cocaine belongs to, the PNC said.
