Hundreds of Kilos of Australia-bound Cocaine found floating at the beach.

Recommended Posts

Lol heres another funny story from Vice. It seems that Colombian Drug Syndicates are using their Filipino distant cousins as a transhipment point for Cocaine bound for the lucrative Australian market.
 
"Australia-Bound Cocaine Has Again Washed Up in the Philippines"
 
https://www.vice.com/en_asia/article/j5w3w4/australia-bound-cocaine-drugs-washed-up-in-philippines-filipino-beach?utm_source=stylizedembed_vice.com&utm_campaign=v747d9&site=vice
 
 
Some relevant snippets
 
 
"Seven packages were found bobbing around in the waters just off Mauban, in Quezon province, on Sunday—all of them containing coke, with a collective street value of about 35 million pesos ($970,000 AUD). Earlier this year, more than 100 kilograms of cocaine was similarly discovered floating off the country’s east coast. And between February and April the Philippine National Police (PNP) seized more than 200 kilograms of the stuff in those same waters, the ABC reports.
 
 
The South Pacific drug trafficking route has become popular in recent years, most likely for this very reason: the cocaine industry is booming in Australia and New Zealand, and the quickest and easiest way for South American cultivators to get their product into that lucrative market is for smugglers to sail straight through the oceanic archipelago.
The Philippines isn’t the first country to be hit with the strange dilemma of pre-packaged drugs washing up on their tropical beaches, either. Last year, some 120 parcels of cocaine were found on the shores of Fijian islands within the space of a few months, and similarly-marked packages also turned up in Tonga a short while before that. At one point, a 20 kilogram brick of coke was found floating in the waters off the east coast of Australia."
 
 
Whats even funny is the sheer naivete' of Filipinos. Who exchanged bricks of Cocaine for bags of rice hahahaha.
 
"In the Philippines, authorities don’t seem to be quite so concerned. Speaking to CNN in February, Albayalde insisted the packages of the drug could not have been intended for Filipino communities as there’s no local market for cocaine there. And indeed, police’s “rice-for-coke” strategy speaks volumes about the amount of faith they have in local do-gooders."
 
 
Those things costs thousands of dollas yet these poor sweet simple minded innocents exchanged those for cups of rice.
 
Hahahaha lol.
