A ton of cocaine seized from a boat in the open sea

DRUGS – A 27-year-old Martinican and a 38-year-old Venezuelan have been arrested and placed in pre-trial detention

The customs officers of Martinique have just made a big catch. They seized on a boat Tuesday in the open sea a ton of cocaine, weapons and ammunition, we learned Friday from a judicial source with the prosecution of Fort de France.

A 27-year-old Martinican and a 38-year-old Venezuelan who were on the boat were arrested and placed in pre-trial detention on Friday. They were indicted for importing narcotics in an organized gang and trafficking in arms.

Tourism for cover

Their boat, theoretically intended for tourist excursions to discover the southern islets, tried to flee and ram the customs officers, but it was finally caught, the prosecution said. This new operation also follows that carried out last December where 700 kg of cocaine had been seized in the same sector.
