A cargo of 400 kilograms of cocaine has been seized aboard the Italy-flagged containership Cala Palma by the Colombian naval and police units, according to information provided by the country’s navy.
The illicit cargo was found in one of the containers on board the 2000-built reefer during a search operation conducted on April 18 in the port of Turbo, Colombia.
The cocaine, which was packed in 400 rectangular packages in 16 bundles, was estimated to be worth around USD 13 million.
The Colombian navy did not disclose whether any charges were brought against the boxship’s crew.
Featuring 16,024 dwt, Cala Palma was soon allowed to continue its voyage to the port of Río Haina in the Dominican Republic.
According to AIS data provided by MarineTraffic, the ship’s final destination is Portugal’s port of Lisboa.
