Mexican Navy Uncovers Cocaine in Frozen Sharks

The Mexican Navy seized in Puerto Progreso, Yucatan, a shipment of cocaine hidden in frozen sharks, which were transported in two cargo containers on the vessel Dover Strait, Marshall Islands flag, from Houston, Texas. Naval sources said that the weight of the drug could reach three tons.

The discovery of the drug occurred when Marines and customs personnel detected irregularities when reviewing containers with X-ray After using trained dogs to confirm their suspicions and finally the GT-200 device, which confirmed the presence of the alkaloid, which was maintained at a temperature of 27 degrees centigrade below zero, according to the Navy Secretariat. He highlighted the work done by the Center for Unified Incident Response Marine and Ports and Customs Administration to perform this operation, first of its kind in a port in the Gulf of Mexico.

Other cocaine seizures made by the Navy took place in Manzanillo, Colima (the largest of 23 tons in 2007) and Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán.

  1. Please warn the public about the fraudulent “detectors” like GT-200. The original inventors of this product were prosecuted in Texas by the FBI years ago for selling the Quadro Tracker. The company moved to England and changed the name to the MOLE tracker, GT200, Alpha 6, ADE651…. Each time the scam is exposed, the company changes the name. The Houston Press newspaper ran a good article in the 1990s saying “Tell them the dog did it” when Quadro Tracker had to warn police not to admit in court they had used the dowsing rod to find drugs or weapons. Do the people of Mexico deserve this? Just like American police were tricked in the 1990s, British, Thailand, Estonian, Iraqi, Lebanon, and now Mexican police have been tricked. Even more police and security agencies were tricked by the similar Sniffex, which did not work either. Please tell the police these rods DO NOT WORK. The US National Institute of Justice warned specifically about these scams almost 10 years ago. DO NOT BUY BOGUS EXPLOSIVE DETECTION EQUIPMENT. And do not arrest people based on bogus drug detection equipment! More information is on my blog at sniffexquestions.blogspot.com
