Drug Enforcement Agents Make Pot Bust in Bolivia’s Andean Region

LA PAZ – Drug enforcement agents seized 419.5 kilos of marijuana hidden in a vehicle abandoned in a town in Oruro, a region in the Bolivian Andes, said the commander of the FELCN drug enforcement agency, Col. Santiago Delgadillo.

The vehicle was found by FELCN agents in the town of Vichuloma, Delgadillo said in a press conference in Oruro.

The marijuana was smuggled into Bolivia from Paraguay and had a street value of about $692,000 in Chile, where it was suspected of being bound, the FELCN chief said.

The FELCN seized 750 grams of cocaine base paste in a separate operation in Caihuasi, another town in Oruro, and arrested three people suspected of smuggling the drugs into Chile.

Drug enforcement agents have seized about 18 tons of cocaine and approximately 72 tons of marijuana so far this year in Bolivia.
