Mexico Finds Almost a Ton of Cocaine Inside Shark Carcasses
Caracas, Monday June 22,2009
MEXICO CITY – A shipment of 893 kilos (1,967 pounds) of cocaine was found hidden inside frozen shark carcasses in the southeastern Mexican port of Progreso, the Navy Secretariat said in a statement.
The drugs were found in a container being transported by the Marshall Islands-flagged Dover Strait vessel, which had departed from Costa Rica for this Gulf coast port, located in Yucatan state.
The secretariat said Wednesday that the seizure was made following a routine X-ray inspection of seven containers.
One of them showed signs of irregularities, prompting navy personnel to carry out a detailed inspection with the help of a GT-200 molecular detector and narcotics-sniffing dogs.
Upon opening one of the shark carcasses, the navy personnel found black plastic bags containing rectangular packages with cocaine inside, according to the secretariat, which did not indicate whether any arrests were made nor the intended destination of the drugs.
Experts say that, of the 650 tons of cocaine shipped each year from South America to the United States, some 400 tons are transported through Mexico and a large portion of that total remains in the Latin American country. EFE
