Nearly 13 kilos of drugs recovered in November 2019

In November 2019, the authorities had multiplied the alert messages concerning bales, the size of a shoebox and wrapped in cellophane to be airtight, which had been found on the beaches of an area from Saint-Jean -de-Luz (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) to Camaret (Finistère).

Last November, a dozen cocaine loaves were recovered in less than a week in Pas-de-Calais, stranded on the beaches between Cap Gris-Nez and Ambleteuse.

A quantity far from negligible since it represented nearly 13 kg of drugs for an amount for resale on the illicit market estimated at more than half a million euros.

According to the Minister of the Interior, 23 tons of cocaine were seized by the police last year in France.
