US Customs plane helps law enforcement in Panama stop 3,300 pounds of cocaine

  1. SmokeTwibz

    JACKONSVILLE, Fla. — U.S. customs officials say they helped law enforcement in Panama intercept more than 3,300 pounds of pure cocaine this past weekend.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports a P-3 aircraft crew was patrolling the open waters near Panama City, Panama, Saturday. They detected a speedboat carrying four suspects, fuel barrels and multiple packages.

    The crew notified Panama law enforcement and directed three Panamanian interceptors to the speedboat’s location. Panamanian law enforcement fired warning shots, causing the speedboat to stop. The suspected traffickers, all claiming Colombian citizenship, were arrested, and their boat was seized.

    The fuel barrels were filled with cocaine, an estimated value of more than $242 million.

    Its funny as the press/police/customs always want to report on the fact they have found such amount of drugs ,its not mentioned about the drugs that make it into country's with no troubles, i remember years back people bringing big amounts of coke in via rowing boats threw the night.

    That was back in the 80s everyone in our town new it was happening at a well known local park but the police didn't no how to deal with this kind of shit
