Peruvian Police Commander Arrested Carrying over 100 Kilos of Cocaine

LIMA – A National Police commander was arrested while traveling to a resort in northern Peru with two suspected drug traffickers and a load of 109 kilos of cocaine, media reports said Sunday.

Freddy Tuesta Chicana, commander of the National Police station in Nuevo Chimbote, was arrested by drug enforcement agents while he drove to the Tortugas resort, located between the cities of Chimbote and Casma in Ancash region, RPP Noticias said.

Tuesta Chicana allegedly hid the cocaine in nine suitcases and was traveling in an SUV with two suspected drug traffickers.

The three suspects apparently planned to hide the drugs in Tortugas and later smuggle the cache out of Peru by sea, Col. Miguel Acuña Gallo, commander of the National Police’s Chimbote Division, told RPP.

“It’s regrettable that an officer would commit such a serious crime, but, at the same time, I salute the firm and decisive action on the part of our institution, which has placed him at the disposition of the authorities,” Ancash regional police chief Gen. Juan Galvez told the Correo newspaper.
