650kg of cocaine hidden in coffee found and seized in Livorno dock

650kg of cocaine have been seized in Livorno, Italy

A container filled with coffee and drugs has been discovered by Guardia di Finanza, the police group in charge of monitoring financial and drug related crimes in the dock of Livorno, sea side city in the north of Tuscany.

The container was on board of a ship with Portuguese flag coming from spain and included next to large quantity of coffee also 650 kilos of cocaine, hidden in several bags which have been seized by the police. According to investigators it made a fairly long trip before being opened by a police group, as it was originally coming from Honduras and had changed boat (according to ansa.it) in Costarica.

The trip wasn’t supposed to be finished in Italy though, as apparently the final destination was a criminal organization in Madrid, Spain.
