Trinidad: Venezuelan cops intercept $40m cocaine shipment bound for Trinidad

A co­caine ship­ment with an es­ti­mat­ed street val­ue close to TT$40 mil­lion, which was des­tined for Trinidad and To­ba­go, was in­ter­cept­ed by mem­bers of the Cuer­po de In­ves­ti­ga­ciones Ci­en­tifi­cas Pe­nales Y Crim­i­nal­is­tics (CI­CPC) in Venezuela yes­ter­day. The drugs were hid­den in se­cret com­part­ments of lux­u­ri­ous cars which were trav­el­ling in a car­a­van at the time.

CI­CPIC is Venezuela’s largest po­lice agency re­spon­si­ble for crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tions and foren­sic ser­vices.

On his Twit­ter ac­count, CI­CPC di­rec­tor Dou­glas Ri­co tweet­ed the seizure of the 388 kilo­grammes of co­caine and said the sus­pects held were “part of a crim­i­nal or­gan­i­sa­tion called the Se­niors, which are en­gaged in the il­lic­it traf­fick­ing of nar­cot­ic and psy­chotrop­ic sub­stances in the na­tion­al ter­ri­to­ry and to the is­land of Trinidad and To­ba­go.”
