900 kilos of drugs seized in speedboat in Boca Chica; three inmates


The National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD), with the support of the Dominican Republic Navy, intelligence agencies and coordinated by the Public Ministry, seized 900 packages, presumably cocaine, in the Caribbean Sea.

During an operation that lasted more than seven hours, and according to intelligence reports, the agents chased a speedboat (type Go Fast) from the east of the country to the coast of Andrés Bay, municipality of Boca Chica, where the boat ran aground.

“Subsequently, the individuals fled, being captured by DNCD tactical teams, which had mounted a large ground operation along the entire coastal coast of the region,” the note said.

In the boat, about 40 feet long, according to initial intelligence reports, arrived in the country from South America, 30 bags were occupied inside, each containing 30 parcels each, for a total of 900.

Authorities arrested two Colombians and a Dominican as they pursued other members of this international drug trafficking network and intensified the investigation process to find other members of this structure.

In the joint operation, they also occupied a wallet with seven cigars that we assume were marijuana, a satellite phone, two outboard motors of 250 Hp each, 14 plastic tanks, a bucket, among other evidence.

The 900 packages were sent under chain of custody to the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (INACIF) to conduct rigorous studies and determine the exact type and weight of the substance.
