740kg of cocaine seized in record breaking interception by Malta Customs

The Malta Customs intercepted a record breaking 740kg of cocaine at the Freeport, with their high purity boosting their street value up to €90 and €100 million. Customs Malta reported that a long operation took place which spanned from Monday morning until Tuesday afternoon, with officials stationed at the Freeport Scanning Facility, intercepted and seized the record breaking amount which was found hidden in a 40ft reefer container.

The cargo was en-route from Ecuador to Slovenia with a ‘refrigerated payload of 1,080 boxes of bananas.’ Officials inspected all the boxes and elevated 740 packets hidden in 37 boxes. This latest bust is historic in street value and size.
