Two Tons Of Cocaine Seized While Floating In The Sea


On Monday, Italian police discovered two tons of cocaine that was drifting off the east coast of Sicily. It is a record-breaking seizure for the agency.

A recording of the drugs, packed in 70 waterproof packages and kept together by a net, held up by a life preserver, was released by authorities. There was also a tracking instrument connected to the drugs.

The discovery was made following an aerial patrol. The cocaine is believed to have been left in the water by a cargo ship to later be picked up and taken to the mainland by a criminal group.

The Cosa Nostra syndicate, the most dominant mafia group in Italy, has had a strong presence on the island of Sicily for a long time. However, it isn’t known if they are responsible for the drugs.
