The packages were hidden in the truck, in a secret department just behind the seats. The container was already open to receive the substance and transport it out of the country.

DNCD agents, military personnel and members of other agencies carried out patrol work and noticed an unusual movement of several individuals near a truck, which alerted all intelligence and security agencies stationed in the port, arresting a man aboard a truck which was stationed next to a container in transit to the United States and whose final destination was Europe

Up to now there are five people detained, others involved are being investigated, so local press expects more details in next few hours.

The 447 packages seized in this operation are being sent to the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (INACIF), which will determine the exact type and weight of the substance in its analysis.
