January 6, 2015

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Authorities in the South American country of Guyana say they have discovered $13 million worth of cocaine aboard a ship that arrived from neighboring Suriname.

The director of the anti-narcotics unit says that officers have so far found an estimated 1,400 kilograms (3,090 pounds) aboard the Cyprus-registered ship named “The Delta Diedre.” James Singh said the ship’s crew was detained early Tuesday.

He said the ship was traveling toward the southeastern port town of Linden to load bauxite from China’s Bosai Minerals Group. The ship was then scheduled to travel to Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium.
