The Ministry of Public Security (MSP) said the  778 packages, each weighing one kilogram, were distributed in 26 bags camouflaged between the refined salt packages.

“This is another blow against transnational criminal organizations and effective work very well done by the PCD,” said Michael Soto, minister of public security.

The container had arrived this week at the Costa Rica terminal from Cartagena, Colombia.

According to the MSP, so far this year, the PCD has seized a total of 7,716 packages of cocaine at the Moin container terminal.
