More drug packages found, this time near Mahahual

Mahahual, Q.R. — A report of a floating package by the harbor master at Mahahual has led to the discovery of drugs by the Mexican navy.

Crew members from the Navy of Mexico were sent to retrieve a floating package that was spotted by Mahahual’s harbor master. Navy personnel from the Tenth Naval Zone set out to perform maritime patrol and surveillance as well as look for additional packages.

From the call, they found 10 packages of marijuana floating at sea near a beach at Mahahual. Each package weighed approximately 1.5 kilos. The drugs were sent to the Public Ministry of the Federation of the City of Chetumal.
