This is the extraordinary story of a massive two tonne seizure of ‘black cocaine’ seized by police after a trusty sniffer dog alerted them.
Colombian cops were tipped off by a Labrador named Mona after she caught a whiff of the Class A drug, which was dyed black to disguise it as printer ink.
As soon as they seized the drugs at Bogota’s El Dorado Airport the police in Mexico were informed, where the shipment was heading to.
Only last week a similar amount and method of disguise was discovered when authorities at the Mexico City’s airport, acting on an anonymous phoned-in tip, found cocaine camouflaged in 40 sacks of black zinc oxide weighing one tonne.
There were no arrests, and police would not say on which airline the illegal cargo shipment had been stashed. Thanks to the awesome Mona and her powerful nose a lot of drugs are now off the streets.
