Apparently, they sent the illicit substances – MDMA pills (ecstasy), hashish and marijuana – in packages of food products that were sent by mail, believed sent to Costa Rica.

Sending synthetic drugs to Costa Rica through postal parcels is not a new method. In recent years, cases have been detected from countries such as Germany and the Netherlands.
