According to the Brazilian newspaper G1, which cites Brazilian authorities, this is the largest drug seizure ever in Brazilian ports.

The narcotic product was hidden inside bags of soybean meal in a container, and the Brazilian police managed to locate the 2.75 tons of cocaine with the help of a sniffer dog. There are no arrests so far.

The Brazilian authorities add that, between 2021 and 2022, more than five tons have already been seized in the port of Vila de Conde, in the Brazilian city of Barcarena.
