506 kg of Cocaine Found Hidden Within Flooring Tiles at Santos Port

June 12: On Wednesday customs officials at the Port of Santos located 506 kg of cocaine in export cargo destined for Antwerp, Belgium.

The cocaine was hidden inside five “pallets”, out of a total of ten, which contained flooring stones (white marble and granite). On four granite and marble pallets, the inner stones (below the third layer) were cut so as to make room for the concealment of the narcotics.
