Dominican authorities seize $20 million in Ecstasy
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Dominican authorities have confiscated $20 million in Ecstasy tablets at an airport — the largest seizure of the drug in the Caribbean country's history.
Authorities say four Dominicans were arrested as they tried to smuggle tobacco boxes filled with Ecstasy tablets onto a flight to Guatemala. Two other suspects are wanted by police.
National Drug Control Agency chief Rolando Rosado Mateo said Friday that the seizure was the result of a two-month investigation into a drug ring that uses illegal laboratories to manufacture Ecstasy and amphetamines.
The suspects were arrested Thursday at the Las Americas International Airport in the capital, Santo Domingo.
