945 Packages of Cocaine Seized at Caucedo Port, DR
November 01: The Dominican Republic’s National Directorate of Drug Control (DNCD) seized 945 packages of cocaine in a container in the Multimodal Port Caucedo.
The information was released by the institution’s spokeswoman, Josefina Capellán, who explained that the drugs were seized after intelligence work, in a container that had been mobilized outside her area. The DNCD operation had the collaboration of DP World Caucedo, under the coordination of the Deputy Attorney General of the Judicial District of the Santo Domingo Province.
Capellán explained that the cocaine would have been transferred to Rotterdam, a famous port city in the Dutch province of South Holland. “The packages were distributed in 32 boxes, in 157 cases of six packages. The substances used were duly packed in cases for evidence and brought to the headquarters of this DNCD, in the custody of members of the operations sub-department, where it was delivered to the chain of custody department of this institution,” explained Capellán. She explained that the substance would be sent to the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (Inacif) to determine weight, quality, and type. It then will be transferred to the warehouses of the Attorney General’s Office.
Some of the drug packages had the virgin Guadalupe painted in their envelope, others a yellow star, or the word YESS, among other details.
