8,000 kilos of coke from Suriname intercepted in Spanish port (VIDEO)

Authorities in Spain have seized 8,000 kilos of cocaine in a container at the port of Algeciras. The party came from Suriname and was hidden in a fake generator. This is one of the largest cocaine seizures ever made in Spain.

Fake generator

According to Spanish customs, the cargo came from the port of Paramaribo. The ship sailed with the cocaine in a fake generator in a container and stopped in Panama, after which it arrived in the southern Spanish port city of Algeciras. However, the destination port was Leixoes in Portugal, from where the drugs would then travel by road back to Spain, to be distributed further into Europe.

According to authorities, this is the first time that drugs from Suriname have been intercepted in Spain. They call the route remarkable and say that it was chosen to make the detection of illegal cargo more difficult.

Not seen before

The drugs were housed in a metal structure designed to fit inside the container, attempting to evade the scanner’s control. A never-before-seen alloy was used to do this, with which the smugglers wanted to avoid the scanner signal.

A suspect who allegedly received the drugs has been arrested. Two other suspects are also being investigated.
