Yet another large drug bust took place just before the year is over, this time in Uruguay who says it has seized a record haul of 6 tonnes of cocaine. Naval and custom officers first seized 4.4 tonnes of cocaine in Montevideo port. The shipment was hidden in four soy flour containers destined for Lome, the capital of Togo. An investigation into the first shipment of 4.4 tonnes led officers to another 1.5 tonnes found on a ranch.
Uruguay is being used more and more by traffickers to move drugs from Latin America to Africa and Europe. Just last month back in November, Uruguay set their previous record haul seizing 3 tonnes of cocaine.


Officials say scanners showed "anomalies" in the containers carrying the load. The company behind the shipment of "soya" had not moved any significant amount of soya in the past, therefore it was flagged as suspicious and eventually the containers were scanned.
