– Second vessel with Guyana connection seized with drugs in Cork
Four Guyanese and two Albanians were on Thursday arrested in Spain after they were found on a Guyanese registered boat containing one tonne or 1,000 kilos of cocaine.
“The operation was carried out in collaboration with the American agency DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and the Spanish Navy. The six crew members of the vessel were arrested…,” a release from the Tax Agency of Spain stated.
The arrests comes even as Irish authorities reported on a seizure of a vessel in Cork containing some 2.2 tonnes or 2253 kilos of cocaine that it said fetches a street value of €157M, which had come to Guyana from Curaçao on August 18th before crossing the Atlantic.
