In less than 24 hours, the Colombian Navy dealt two heavy blows to the drug trafficking organizations in the departments of Cauca and Valle del Cauca. It intercepted a boat that transported more than 1,003 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride and 151 kilograms of marijuana creepy. Troops also report the discovery of 120 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride, in a ship, which would have sailed from Buenaventura to Peru.
