DEC in record cocaine seizure

The Drug Enforcement Commission has arrested two (02) Bolivian nationals for trafficking in cocaine, the largest single seizure of cocaine.

DEC Public Relations Officer Samuel Silomba says Jorge Galvaro Padilla, 31, a male Bolivian has been arrested and jointly charged with Maron Padraza Jackeline, 21, a female Bolivian, for trafficking in cocaine with a total weight of 13.2 kilogrammes.

Mr Silomba tells QFM News that this is the largest single seizure ever recorded by the Commission.

He explains that the cocaine was concealed in DVD players, baby power containers and cocoa containers.

Mr Silomba says the two suspects had also swallowed a large number of cocaine pellets.

He says Jorge Galvaro Padilla had swallowed 89 pellets while Jackeline Maron Pedraza had 99 pellets.

The two suspects are in custody and will appear in court soon.

    Well why not just legalise the stuff and auction it to make money? That stuff at OMV (Open Market Value) is a cool K13billion enought to sort out the drainnage problem in Kanyama before the next cholera season. In fact this amount plus the Gold auction money could have solved Lusaka’s drainage headache once for all!
