Gendarmerie kidnapped more than 4 tons of marijuana from Brazil in Misiones
As part of a routine operation carried out yesterday afternoon near the missionary town of San José, the Argentine National Gendarmerie (GNA) seized more than 4 tons of marijuana that were transported in a truck from Brazil.
According to spokespersons consulted by the agency Telam, it all started at 3.30 pm on Saturday, when a truck with registration from the aforementioned neighboring country arrived at the “Centinela” checkpoint, located at the intersection of national routes 14 and provincial routes 105, about 40 kilometers south of the city of Posadas.
There, in a review, one of the officers noticed irregularities in the tapes that tied the canvas cover that protected the cargo and with the help of a dog belonging to the same security force, he detected the presence of the drug.
The dog reacted when approaching the vehicle and that was enough for the uniformed men to request the intervention of the Federal Court on duty in Posadas, of the judge Veronica Skanata, to requisition the truck.
Upon opening the customs seals, they found a substance that was prepared in 175 packages. Along with the shot they were taken to the Apostles squad to the final weigh-in: it threw 4,125 kilograms of marijuana.
The vehicle, which entered Argentina through the Tancredo Neves international bridge, came from Foz do Iguazú and was destined for the province of Córdoba, according to what was reported. While, the driver of the truck, a Scania H113, was detained and held incommunicado available to the Federal Court of the missionary capital.
It is the third consecutive day in which a large amount of drugs is seized in Misiones
With the kidnapping of this Saturday, it is the third consecutive day in which a large quantity of drugs has been seized in Misiones. The first of these events occurred last Thursday, near the town of Santa Ana, where Gendarmería managed to seize 5,933 kilos of marijuana that were transported in another Brazilian truck.
During the early morning of that day, troops from Road Safety Group “Jardín América”, dependent on Squad 11 “San Ignacio”, they noticed a suspicious movement: they realized that the same vehicle had passed through the checkpoint the night before, but in the opposite direction.
When stopping him and requesting the documentation, the driver presented the itinerary, with a load declared as spare vehicle transportation. That motivated the operation that ended with the seizure of the drug and the subsequent arrest of the truck driver, a man of Argentine nationality.
In both cases, trucks from Brazil were involved, and their respective drivers were arrested.
In this case, the agents were also assisted by a force dog, identified as “Tedy”, who helped them discover the illegal shipment of 5,933 kilos in bulk of marijuana, which were distributed in 344 packages.
Meanwhile, last Friday, members of the Mission Police stopped a medium-sized truck in the Nemesio Parma place, in the west of Posadas, which was transporting 3.931,500 kilos of the same drug.
On the other hand, the troops of the Section “San Cosme” and from Investigations and Procedures Task Force, dependent on Squadron 48 “Corrientes”, from the homonymous province, seized more than 200 kilos of the same substance, which they found hidden in an abandoned Renault Clio car a few meters from a control located on National Route 12, near the department of Ensenada Grande.
On that occasion, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office No. 2 intervened, which ordered the corresponding acts of violation of Law 23,737 on Narcotic Drugs to be drawn up and ordered the seizure of the drug for its subsequent transfer.
