Police apprehended two tons of cocaine

Portugal’s police apprehended more than two tons of cocaine aboard a commercial ship in their second major drug bust in four days. Police units supported by the Navy and Air Force intercepted the Panamanian registered “Luna del Mar” in the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday, a police statement said.
Detectives boarded the freighter and found more than 100 bags of cocaine and the crew was taken into custody. Last Thursday, police seized nearly three tons of cocaine in a raid on a house in the Minho region, northern Portugal.
