June 27th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) At least 716 kilos of cocaine were seized during an operation carried out by the Drug Control Police (PCD) yesterday in Sardinal de Carillo in Guanacaste, near the popular tourist destination of Playas del Coco.
Security Minister, Celso Gamboa provided preliminary information about the raid yesterday, which was reportedly assisted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
Two Colombian nationals and two Costa Ricans were arrested during the raid. At least one suspect, a woman, may have escaped by jumping from a window of the home where the seizure was made.
Authorities apparently discovered a large sum of currency in addition to the cocaine.
