The National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) last night seized 333 packages of cocaine, weighing approximately 336 kilos that would be sent to France via the Caucedo Multimodal Port, camouflaged in medical equipment, said the drug agency.
According to the report released by DNCD chief Rolando Rosado, this is the biggest drug bust in Dominican Republic this year.
Rosado said the drug found in the marine terminal would be out of the country in a container shipped by a company with headquarters in La Romana.
The container where the drug was distributed on nine suitcases has the number SUDU7522562 and would be mounted on the motor vessel Columba to be shipped to the port of Le Havre, France, a city in Upper Normandy.
