The detailed search on the potato sacks that were transported in the NPR vehicle THR 414 on the Santander de Quilichao - Pitalito route, led to the discovery of 59 packages with 60 kilos of the drug.
After the flagrante delicto, the vehicle was immobilized, the hallucinogen was confiscated and the lecture of rights of Mr. Ferney Adrián García, 19, and Mr. Orley Benavidez Martínez, 27, took place. They were put into custody of the authority for the crime of trafficking, manufacture and carrying of narcotic drugs.
