Another successful accomplishment for Malta’s customs officers as they managed to seize more than 91kg of cocaine at the Malta Freeport.
76 packets containing 91.6kg of the drug were found hidden inside compressor compartments of refrigerated containers containing fruit that were headed to an EU member state from an unnamed south American country.
The drugs have an estimated street value of €10.2 million.
A physical search confirmed indications, with 38 packets of cocaine found hidden in each of the two containers.
The case is now being investigated by police’s anti drug squad. A magistrate is leading an inquiry into the case.
