Cocaine supply pipeline from Latin America foiled by operatives
During a joint operation, officers of the police, the FSB, and the Customs foiled a major channel for cocaine supply to Russia from Latin America.
As reported by Head of the MIA press service Irina Volk, drugs used to be sent to Russia in parcels for pensioners. Citizens of Colombia, Russia, and Venezuela were involved in the international drug ring. Parcels with cocaine were sent from Paraguay and Colombia and entered Russia through Germany.
According to Irina Volk, parcels with drugs were sent to Russian pensioners. The gang members paid them for receiving mail. The parcels contained items of household use, and the cocaine was carefully packed and disguised among the goods.
Currently, the organizers of drug trafficking have been detained and give confessions. Criminal cases into this crime have been referred to the Moscow district court and the Domodedovo district court.
