- Police in New Zealand said they intercepted roughly 3.5 tons of cocaine that was floating in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean.
- Authorities said the capture of the drugs will deal a blow to South American drug producers and that the cocaine was likely headed for Australia.
- “This is one of the single biggest seizures of illegal drugs by authorities in this country. While this disrupts the syndicate’s operations, we remain vigilant given the lengths we know these groups will go to circumvent coming to law enforcement’s attention,” New Zealand Police Commissioner Andrew Coster said.
