DID YOU SEE ?
For several weeks, 763 kg of cocaine have been discovered on the Atlantic coast. Their provenance is not yet known, the police call for the greatest caution against these bales of cocaine. Five beaches in Gironde have been closed for safety reasons.
This is the choice made by Laurent Peyrondet, the mayor of Lacanau, who closed the main access to the beaches of the town. "The services of the state (gendarmes, customs officers) crisscross the territories, because he noticed that some people had come patrol on a motorcycle or on foot to retrieve bales. So today we are part of the device and we recommend people to call the 17 if they see something and they are told not to pick up the bales, "says the elected.
"Evil people have already taken advantage of the situation"
The presence of these people who have already come to collect these packages of cocaine does not surprise Laurent Peyrondet: "When we know the value of these products, when it is bales of 5 or 6 kilos ... It has already been picked up almost a ton of product on the coast, so there are always malicious people who can take advantage of the situation. "
Dozens of drug packages were discovered in Charentes-Maritime, the Landes and Gironde.
