SENAN Seized Two Drug Trafficking Boats in Caribbean

Drug TraffickingIntense operations conducted by the National Air Service (SENAN) paid off this week when they confiscated two boats that were in the hands of Colombians and Costa Ricas. The boats were intercepted by the SENAN after a chase that took place along the Caribbean Coast in the province of Colon, because they wanted to see if they were being used to transport illegal substances. This year the SENAN has seized more than three tons of drugs along the various coasts of Panama, where the Panamanian Caribbean is often used for the smuggling of drugs from Colombia to Central America. This entity will continue with the operations in the different parts of the country, which began last Thursday, in conjunction with the National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) and others. At least 400 officers have been deployed to the different coasts of the country to remain vigilant on the beaches of Gorgona, Santa Clara, Juan Hombrón and El Palmar. (TVN)

Editor's Comment: The SENAN can do ion testing which detects cocaine residue in boats like this. Even if they don't catch the drug traffickers in the act, or if there are no drugs in the boat at the time, they will still seize the boat and motor if the ion test comes back positive.
