Cocaine destined for the Netherlands seized at the airport of the Dominican Republic

Six sheets of cocaine, destined for the Netherlands, were seized on Sunday by the Dominican Republic’s National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD) at Las Américas International Airport.

DNCD said members of the Specialized Airport Security Corps and the Public Prosecution Service were conducting checks at a warehouse when a dog was alerted to controlled substances in a box full of computer video cards.

Upon searching the package, officers discovered 250 grams of cocaine hidden in six envelopes.

DNCD said a shipping manifest showed that the package was believed to have been sent by a woman with an address in Ciudad Juan Bosch, Las Flores, and was to be received by a person with a residence in Rousseaustraat, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
