Huge Cocaine Catch in Huanchaco, Peru

Over three tons of cocaine has been found in a warehouse near the Trujillo airport in Huanchaco, Peru, about 8 minutes from where we live.

Eight people were arrested, including 2 Mexicans and six Peruvians.

The cocaine appeared to be destined for Belgium and Spain, where 2.2 pounds (1 kilo) sells for about 45 thousand dollars.
