Bahamas Named In Drug Bust Smuggling Ring

  The Bahamas has been named in what has been described as the biggest drug bust ever in Israel as lawmen in that Middle Eastern country reported breaking up a smuggling ring involving three countries. They said one and a half tonnes of cocaine, worth US$500 million, have been seized in the Caribbean island, Spain and Peru.

A statement issued by law enforcement officials did not reveal how much of the illegal drug was found in the Bahamas, neither did it give any indication as to how deeply the island was involved in the ring.

However, the police statement said that the drugs were hidden inside industrial machinery and then shipped in containers from Latin America to Europe and the Middle East. 

The contraband was reportedly seized between October 5 and November 15 as a result of a joint investigation carried out by Israeli authorities and various European and South American police forces.

It has been reported that some Israelis have been arrested so far, including a welder and the head of a cargo company who arranged the drugs’ transport. They were held in Peru.
