Colombian police seized over 12 tons of cocaine valued at US$360 million (€310.4 million) in Apartado on Wednesday, the largest-ever seizure in the country’s history, according to President Juan Manuel Santos.
Police reported that the drugs belonged to the trafficking cartel ‘the Gulf Clan’ and that they arrested four people during their operation. Colombia is one of the leading producers of the substance, and is often dubbed the world’s “cocaine capital.”
