CARACAS, March 31 (Itar-Tass) – Venezuelan security services have had a combat operation against drug smugglers who tried to ship a consignment of narcotic drugs, the Minister of the Interior and Justice, Nestor Reverol said Sunday.
In the course of an exchange of fire that occurred in the state of Apure on the border with Colombia, one trafficker was killed.
A unit of the Bolivarian National Guard /the country’s military police/ seized a Sessna-T210 single-engine plane, four automatic rifles and a radio transmitter.
At the time of reporting, special assignment forces were mopping up the area where the covert landing strip had been found. A search for other consignments of drugs that were believably destined to be shipped to Honduras is also underway.
Venezuela will not allow anyone to use its territory for an illegal transportation of drugs, Nestor Reverol told the Venzolana de television channel.
Colombian drug cartels are actively using the 2,219 km long Venezuelan-Colombian border as a transit territory. Last year alone, Venezuelan security services confiscated 45 tons of drugs, inclusive of 27 tons of cocaine.
