Bolivian law enforcement intensifies search for fugitive drug lord

La Paz, Aug 15 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian authorities decided to step up the search for drug trafficker Sebastián Marset after the Uruguayan Deputy Minister of the Interior, Guillermo Maciel, expressed doubts regarding his possible departure from the country.

Bolivian Police General Commander Alvaro Alvarez, in turn, confirmed that Operation León 23 –as they call the search and capture operation of the kingpin– had carried out 64 raids up until last weekend, during which vehicles, firearms, cash, and drugs were seized.

According to alvarez, the operation is a major challenge, because it is a “complex” organization that has mobilized 1,743 police officers in search of the most wanted Uruguayans in the region due to his links with drug trafficking.

The police commander reported that the damage to Marset’s criminal group amounts to 23 million US dollars.

Marset is considered a “highly dangerous” and a “high value” drug trafficker.

The Bolivian Government offered a reward of 100,000 dollars to anyone who provides “precise” information that helps capture him, in addition to providing him with the corresponding guarantees and protection, which was ratified by Alvarez to the press.
