Director of a French company finds cocaine inside a package containing electronic equipment
The director of a company in Camembert, western France, found a kilogram of cocaine while he was unloading boxes containing electronic equipment, coming from a container that arrived at the port of Le Havre, the most important point for cocaine to enter France from South America.
"I was surprised that a kilogram of cocaine fell in front of me," said the company's director, who preferred not to be named, confirming information reported by the daily "Le Telegram" newspaper.
When the director opened the rectangular box wrapped in a black bag, he found a white powder.
"I suspected it was drugs because we see similar incidents on TV," he said, noting that he immediately called the police station.
He explained that the container that crossed the port of Le Havre was loaded with electronic equipment made in Mexico.
The port of Le Havre became the main entry point for cocaine into France from South America.
In 2021, 10 tons of drugs were seized in the 3 million containers that passed through the port.
