Colombian Police Seize More Than 12 Tons of Cocaine

BOGOTA – Authorities confiscated more than 12 tons of cocaine in the Uraba region of the northwestern province of Antioquia, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said on Wednesday.

“This is the largest seizure of cocaine made by the National Police in a single operation,” he said during a visit to Uraba.

Some 400 officers took part in the operation, which included coordinated “aerial assaults” on four banana plantations in the municipalities of Chigorodo and Carepa.

The cocaine had been hidden in underground caches and the properties were guarded by gunmen from the Gulf Clan, Colombia’s largest criminal outfit, the president said.

Four people were arrested in the operation.

The latest haul brings the amount of cocaine seized in Antioquia over the last two months to 20 tons.
