Cylinders with 78 kilos of cocaine and heroin found wielded to German boxship hull
Colombian Navy seized 78.4 kilograms of cocaine and heroin stashed in two cylinders, which were wielded to underwater hull of a boxship HANSA AUGSBURG. Reportedly drugs were found during HANSA AUGSBURG stay in Colombia. Vessel left Puerto Bolivar Colombia on Nov 15, and on Nov 16 arrived to Haina, Dominican Republic. Among next ports of call is Miami USA, no doubt drugs were destined for USA delivery. It looks like Navy knew where to search and what is it they were after, i.e. they did have an intelligence. Vessel and crew seem to be free of suspicions or allegations, as vessel left Colombia according to schedule.
