[:es]Fishing boats were recovered in the border[:]
Nariño. In recent hours, troops of the National Navy recovered in a rural area of the municipality of Tumaco, in the department of Nariño, two rudimentary fishing boats that had been recently stolen in Ecuador.
The exchange of information and articulation of efforts of the troops of the Colombian Navy and the Armed Forces of Ecuador led to the finding of the two rudimentary fishing boats that had been stolen in that country and were recovered by the Colombian authorities in the Estero Aguas Claras, in the rural area of the municipality of Tumaco, in Nariño.
The boats had been abandoned in the place, apparently due to the pressure exerted in the area by the troops of the Navy Infantry Battalion No. 40 of the National Navy. After the recovery of the boats, the authorities moved to the municipality of Tumaco, in Nariño, and began the procedures to return them to their owners.
The Military and Police Forces of Colombia and Ecuador, will continue to exchange experiences and information that lead to fight articulately transnational crimes such as drug trafficking, illegal fishing, theft, smuggling and illegal trafficking in persons, among others.
