Success for Brazilian Federal Police against drug smugglers

On Monday of this week the Federal Police in Brazil carried out a large scale raid at the port of Santos near Sao Paolo. Following extensive investigations since last year, the FP swooped on Monday on a container-ship operation that intended to export cocaine (and associated equipment). Target destinations were apparently Cuba, Africa and Europe.

The scam involved smuggling the narcotics on board in individual back packs without knowledge of the owners of the vessels .  They were then to be hidden in legitimate containers for recovery at the eventual destinations.As well as arresting 23 people, the Police seized 3.7 tonnes of cocaine, 230,000 euros in money, ten vehicles, a boat and 21 firearms.
