More Than 1 Ton of Cocaine Seized in Ecuador

QUITO – Ecuadorian authorities seized more than a ton of cocaine in an operation in which they arrested six people, the Attorney General’s Office reported Thursday.

The operation, in which personnel from the police and the AG’s office participated, was carried out early Thursday morning in the southwestern province of Guayas.

“The prosecutor in charge of the operation said that the drug was apparently ready to be sent by sea to Central America,” said the AG’s office.

In the operation, the AG’s office added, the prosecutor ordered a preliminary field test of the drug which came back positive for cocaine.

The AG’s office did not say what the nationalities of the six arrested people were.

Ecuador is not a drug-producing country, but its neighbors Colombia and Peru are the principal producers of cocaine.
