Cocaine found in Callao, crew member suspect
The Peruvian Drug Enforcement agency officers searched the "Cap San Sounio" in the morning of June 29, 2018, at the Callao container terminal, upon its arrival from Buenaventura, Colombia. They found and seized a 24-kilo shipment of cocaine, hidden in a compartment under the cargo deck in row 04 bay 64 aft area. The cocaine was believed to have been destined for Europe. The place where the cocaine was found implied the possibility of a crew complicity. It wasn’t hidden, as in the majority of container ships drug busts, in a container. At least one crew member was detained and interrogated as a suspect. On June 30 the ship was still docked at the DP World Callao Container Terminal.
