Biggest cocaine bust ever in Germany withover 4 tons from Uruguay

Canadiana Borderland Beat republished from CBS an AFP




German customs have uncovered more than $1 billion worth of cocaine in a shipping container that originated from Montevideo, Uruguay, authorities said in an announcement Friday. It's the single largest haul of the drug ever in Germany's history.


Authorities said they confiscated 4.5 tons of cocaine worth 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) after they were examining cargo that arrived in the Port of Hamburg en route to Antwerp, Belgium, two weeks ago. The shipment paperwork claimed it was made up entirely of soybeans, instead, customs found over 4,200 packets of pressed cocaine in 211 sports bags.

"This outstanding success proves once again how powerfully German customs fight crime," said Rolf Bösinger, the state secretary in charge of customs at the Federal Ministry of Finance. "With sophisticated risk analysis, customs succeed in opening the right containers and extracting illegal goods from the enormous number of containers that pass through the Port of Hamburg every day."
Ship carrying $1 billion of cocaine could have another 30 tons on board

The "enormous" amount seized represents the largest individual security of cocaine in German history, customs said.

The cocaine that was seized has already been destroyed under "strict secrecy and extensive security measures," according to authorities. The previous largest seizure of cocaine happened in 2017 when 3.8 tons were confiscated in three individual seizures.

This haul comes more than a month after a cargo ship owned by JP Morgan Chase with 20 tons of cocaine on board –– with an estimated value of $1.3 billion –– was also seized.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection said this was the largest vessel ever seized in the agency's 230-year history.

  3. Damn, that is a lot of product. I don’t care how big you are, this is a major loss to anyone. I’m assuming they had a snitch on the load. I love how the Cops always try to say it was a random catch, like they weren’t already tipped off on the shipment.

  4. 4.5 tons = 1.1B while 20 tons = 1.3B either someone skimmed off the 20 tons or the math is just off.

    1. Supply and demand. Getting drugs to the US simple, getting them to Europe a bit of a Challenge

  5. "Cocaine Mitch" was making fun of his accusers when his father in law's boat got caught in Colombia hauling coal for Europe with a small load of cocaine, even made, T shirts with his new nickname...
    But now he is mad about the new nickname he earned, "Moscow Mitch", get your mugs, bear pussy hats and T-shirts before the greedy Kentucky Democrats raise the prices.

  6. 20 tons in the US - worth $1.3 billion
    4 tons in GER worth $1 billion
    much lower prision sentences & much nicer prisons.
    Its a smart move, less violence, no noise an big money

    The bust didnt make big news and i expect more like this due to the new free trade agreements the EU made.

    3. Welcome to modern Buccaneering, pirates of old used to confiscate loads owned by foreign enemies in the name of the king, these days they steal them in the name of their favorite banks or banksters, stealing shiploads beats buying them from their rightful owners and traffickers, don't have to show a pirate Skull and Bones flag.

    2. Chivis: I am not surprised. It seems quite natural for Uruguay (Paraguay, and Argentina) to have ties with Germany.... These countries got many German refugees(including Nazis) after WW2.

    3. 6:21 Colombia is also the staging center for all the cacaina produced all over the SouthAmericas, Bolivia is another great producer and the false wars in drugs got started with the murder of Che Guevara that married Cuba with the drug traffickers for good, Castro having done his part Klaus Barbie did his with Carlos Lehder and his Colombian partners, all undercover agents of Klaus Barbie's #1 patrons, Kissinger and the CIA.
      MIKE LEVINE wrote that book, La Guerra Falsa, or The Big White Lie describing the coup against the Bolivian government to install the Banana Republic Of Bolivia as the Vietnam War was getting too old for the American people and the heroin trafficking was about over.
      Klaus Barbie AKA "the Butcher of Lyons" also gave seminars in torture to the regimes of Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina and Chile that were so helpful to the golpista juntas that martyred SouthAmerica all through the 70s, helped by the likes of Walter Rauff, SS Colonel who invented the movil death chambers in Red Cross ambulances that connected engine exhaust pipes to the cab where prisoners died before getting to their destination, when he died in 1984 german and Chilean mourners chanted Heil Hitler at his funeral, Pinochet was a great admirer and protector, he was himself elevated to power by the US Navy And the CIA of kissinger and Nixxon...other Nazi rat line refugees were Dr Josef Mengele and Adolf Eichmann, the OSS of kissinger and the catholic church Austrian Bishop Alois Budal helped them get to America.

      By Christopher Klein... no Mexicans were yet involved in high level drug trafficking to the US, except for, maybe, grifa,

    4. How can Culombia produce so much?
      Drug trafficking guerrillas have been replaced by peace loving military and Polesia Nacional working side by side with US military from 7 American military bases, hundreds of cells and thousands of men who know what is good, logistics, buying cheap by the bulk and moving it away to trusted members who are probably getting shanked by associates of former guerrillas, LOL.
      BOLIVIA has no seas worth mentioning, Peru and other cocaine produce for distributing point Colombo, money men like to be in the middle making most of the profit since before the Middle Ages when wise men started getting their inspirations from I don't know where... Drugs most probably...
