More than 3 kilograms of cocaine paste were seized by staff of the Piura Division of Drug Enforcement at kilometer 1114 of the Panamerican Highway in the district of Las Lomas, reports La Républica and RPP.
The cargo was on board a minibus painted with the name "Mighty Captive."
Among those arrested was Edgar John Vicente Lazo. The Superior Court of Lima requested an indictment for the crime of the smuggling of drugs. Two other subjects, whose seat tickets matched the number of luggage where the drugs were found, were also interrogated.
The suspects were taken to the police station for further investigation of the case, with the participation of public prosecutors specialized in drug issues.
