The finding at two points in the area was the result of investigations by the Anti-Narcotics Division and the work of canine units, according to a press release.
The first seizure was of 39 kilos of cocaine, in an operation in which an individual identified as Juan Alfredo Amaya was captured, who was hiding it in his home, to later distribute it throughout the municipality.
The press release informed that the drugs are valued at approximately 975,000 dollars.
In another action in the same area, two individuals were arrested who were transporting half a kilo of the same substance, and the van in which they were traveling was seized.
So far this year, the authorities have seized more than six tons of different types of narcotics at sea and in the nation’s territory.
