AFP: Brazil cocaine seizures up more than 90 percent in first half of 201923 July 2019 | 00:46 | FOCUS News Agency
Nearly half of the drugs were found at Santos port in southern Brazil, not far from where police recently arrested two men suspected of belonging to Italian mafia 'Ndrangheta.
Customs officials attributed the increase in seizures to better intelligence and increased vigilance along Brazil's borders.
"Last year we seized 31.4 tons of cocaine, a record that we will surely beat again," Arthur Cazella told AFP.
