The complex in Norte de Santander would belong to the Organized Armed Group, GAO, ELN, and would cost more than 5,000 million pesos.
In the course of military operations in the rural area of the municipality of Tibú, Norte de Santander, troops of the Vulcano Task Force found and destroy an illegal hideout with supplies for the production of cocaine hydrochloride that would cost more than 5,000 million pesos.
The complex that was in the Area Libre village contained more than 650 kilograms of solid precursors and more than 820 gallons of liquid precursors, as well as 10 metal barrels of 55 gallons, with N-propyl acetate substances; 4 plastic barrels of 55 gallons, with ammonia; 10 bags of calcium chloride; 8 bags of caustic soda, 4 bags of cement and other elements necessary for the production of this drug.
It is noteworthy that with the introduction of these substances, a potential for the production of two tons of cocaine hydrochloride is prevented. The drug placed in port has an approximate price of 5,000 million pesos.
This hideout would belong to the Juan Fernando Porras Martínez front, of the Organized Armed Group ELN, which finances these activities to generate terrorist operations against civilians and Military Forces in the region.
