Spanish Police Seize 1.5 Tons of Cocaine on High Seas

CADIZ, Spain – Spain’s National Police said Tuesday that at the beginning of the month it boarded a British-flagged yacht on the high seas and found more than 1.5 tons of cocaine on board.

The investigation began at the beginning of the month when police learned that the yacht La Flibuste had sailed from Trinidad and Tobago and was headed for a marina on the Spanish coast.

After taking over the sailboat, police arrested all three members of the crew – one Spaniard and two Frenchmen – and in searching the three-masted, 30-meter (98-foot) craft, they seized 1,515 kilos (1 ton, 1,337 pounds) of cocaine hidden in the double roof of two forward cabins.

The yacht was taken to the port of Cadiz in southwestern Spain, where the search continued.

According to police, the investigation that led to the operation was carried out in collaboration with Britain’s Serious Organized Crime Agency and several groups and specialized brigades of the Spanish police. EFE
