The Peruvian police announced on Wednesday that they seized a ton of drugs that were to be shipped to Spain in packages that had labels that showed the photographs of the known drug traffickers Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and Pablo Escobar in order to demonstrate their “purity”.
Chron.com informed that the head of the anti-drug police, Héctor Loayza, said that the 1,150 kilos of drugs were to be camouflaged in dozens of boxes containing frozen fish and that the total cargo was priced at $45 million US dollars in Spanish ports.
In the operation, eight Peruvians and four Colombians, suspected members of the drug gang, were arrested.
